The Duqm waste management facility was built at a cost of $18m.

Operations have begun at an $18.2m (OMR7m) integrated waste management facility located in Oman's Special Economic Zone of Duqm (Sezad), which will be managed by Oman Environmental Services Holding Company (Be'ah), a government-owned organisation in the sultanate's solid waste sector.

According to Be’ah, the integrated facility comprises administrative buildings and several other facilities required for the operations of a landfill, which comprises several cells for municipal solid waste, and industrial waste.

The latest facility has the capacity to store and treat 3.5 million tonnes of hazardous and non-hazardous solid waste, state news agency, ONA, reported.

According to local daily Times of Oman, the Duqm integrated waste management facility spans 433ha and has been constructed to handle more than 300 tonnes of waste per day.

In August 2015, an Indian-Oman joint venture comprising Oman’s Hasan Juma Backer and India's Tatva Global Environment was awarded the contract to design and construct the waste storage and disposal facility.
