The Indian state of Kerala is in discussion with Muscat Project and Environment Service Company, an Oman-based firm, about setting up several state-of-the-art waste management projects across the state, a top-level official has said.

According to a report by The Times of Oman, the eco-friendly project, which has been implemented successfully in the Sultanate, can be easily replicated in Kerala. The paper quoted Niyas Pulikkalakath, the chairman of Kerala’s State Industrial Development Corporation as saying that the prevailing waste disposal method in the Sultanate was ‘really impressive’.

Kerala is struggling to deal with several major issues, such as pollution, the overuse of pesticides in agriculture and water pollution. Therefore, the eco-friendly waste management projects from Muscat Project and Environment Service Company would be ideal, said Pulikkalakath, following a meeting with EM Badruddeen, managing director of the Omani company.

He added that he would be submitting a report to the Kerala government about replicating similar projects, aimed at protecting the environment, which was a major concern in the state.
