In Oman, H2-Industries and Public Establishment For Industrial Estates – Madayan have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to develop a waste-to-hydrogen plant in conjunction with PV solar power plants with base-load capacity in the Sultanate of Oman. The proposed $1.4 billion facility will be built on a 200,000m2 coastal site.
The facility will initially convert up to one million tons of municipal solid waste each year sourced from waste management operators and mined from existing landfills but has the capacity to expand to manage up to four million tons of waste. The project also includes the construction of a 300 MW base-load capable PV solar installation that will include 70 MW of electrical storage.
The annual production of hydrogen and CO₂ generated from the waste has an export value of over $268 million, comprising 67,000 tons of green hydrogen and one million tons of CO₂. Although the primary function of the plant is to produce green energy without environmentally harmful emissions, it also offers additional benefits to the region. The project will allow Oman to develop an effective waste management system creating employment and delivering other socio-economic benefits
