Sultanate Oman located on the North-east of Arabian Peninsula has a land area of 309,500 Sq kms and a population of 2.743 million. It is in a rain shadow area and has a scarce annual average Rainfall of around 100 mm resulting in very less ground water re-charge. With the steadily increasing population, booming economy and enhanced living standards the demand for water is increasing day by day and the annual domestic demand is increasing at a pace of around 8% every year. So it becomes a continuous process for our planning and design engineers either to upgrade the existing or add additional desalination units to meet the ever increasing demands without affecting the ecosystem. All our plants are eco-friendly either of RO or MSF, with the advanced energy recovery systems, following the latest technologies with out posing any compromise to environmental safety.

In the midst of this environmental problem, the state government of Sao Paulo in partnership with Companhia de Saneamento Básico do Estado de Sao Paulo (Sabesp) created the Programa de Reciclagem de Óleo (PROL) – Recycling Program for Cooking Oil. The project represents a comprehensive  environmental program in partnership with governmental and non governmental organizations, businessmen, housewives, teachers and students. 

The project, which was accepted by the majority of the population, has supported and collaborated in its implementation and dissemination. Each year that passes, more cities adhere to the project.  Beyond the environmental issue, the program has a social appeal because in some cities, the collection of oil has generated income to poor communities.  The population has become aware of this project because of a major advertising campaign via posters and leaflets, which were distributed to partner institutions of this initiative.
