Over the last few years, Oman has been the front runner in implementing key policies nationwide in initiating and implementing important changes in their waste management strategy. In order to facilitate the Sultanate’s vision, Fleming Gulf is organising the 3rd International Conference for Waste Management Oman with the support of Muscat Municipality.
