Oman’s circular economy ambitions aim to maximize value and eliminate waste by improving the design of locally-made materials, products, systems and business models. Transitioning to a low- carbon, circular economy will deliver significant economic, social and environmental benefits as well as present Oman with a variety of opportunities including
The design of long lasting, reusable and easily recyclable products.
Decreased use of raw materials and non-renewable resources and increasing the use of renewable resources and recycled materials.
A shift from “waste management” to “resource recovery” where everything has a value and zero waste goes to Omani landfills.
The transition from linear Omani supply chains that produce disposable products to circular supply chains that produce ongoing services.
