SOHAR operator to ban non-reusable plastic
The Tristar Group has committed to ban non-reusable plastic materials in its shipping operations at SOHAR Port and Freezone, commencing 2019.
This was announced at the Sohar Safety Summit with the theme ‘Drive Change in Safety Culture’ which was attended by Sohar Industrial Port Company (SIPC) officials and users of the Port of Sohar Service jetty.
Tristar ship management general manager Henri de Gersigny said: “We at Tristar are committed to support the 2018 World Environment Day theme of ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’ by refusing items that cannot be reused.”
He also urged the summit participants to support the cause by getting involved in keeping the environment clean and improving the health of their personnel.
Last month, SOHAR Port and Freezone and Oman’s Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs (MECA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for environmental management and best practise.
In 2016, the port invested in LED street lighting, the first port in the Middle East to do so.
