Appendix 2.1 Minutes of the 3rd National Steering Committee Meeting for the Project "Integrated Waste Management for the Olive Oil Pressing Industry in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan" 11th Apr 2007

Objectives: Discussing the pilot plant in order to identify the best technology used in the treatment of liquid wastes produced by the olive oil mills. Reviewing the experts' outcomes and presenting what will be accomplished in the near future. Assigning roles and responsibilities between the committee members and the experts in order to achieve immediate outcomes. Welcome & Introduction: HE Eng. Faris Al Junidi (General Secretary) welcomed all the members for attending the meeting and briefly outlined the important aspects of the project. He also clarified how the pilot plant will be as raw model for the other environmental projects in Jordan. In addition, he encouraged the committee members to continue on the same track. Presentations: Dr. Adnan Khdair/ the Project Manager welcomed the steering committee members and

presented an overview of the main points of phase II of the project which included introducing the cleaner production option and prevention measures and control in the olive oil industry in the project area. It also included environmental audit of six olive oil mills (two mills from each type). The environmental audit of these mills have measured the mills impact on the surrounding using experimental analysis of sample taken from selected site in order to determine the pollution load inflected on the environment. This will be accomplished with full cooperation with universities, ministries, and national research center concerned with treatment of Zibar, and Jift produced from olive pressing, and converted them to clean industry and suitable for the environment. In addition, cooperation with cleaner production center (RAC/CCP) and other European research center working in this field will be strengthening in order to choose the best technology for better production and proper treatment of liquid and

88

solid wastes, through building pilot waste treatment plant for Zibar produced after oil pressing and serving most of the olive mills. The Experts presented to the committee members their findings in phase I and phase II of the project and their next outcomes in the near future. The presentations were as follows:

Minutes Focal Points: Identifying the pilot plant criteria and requirements:

Dr. Adnan Khdair explained that the pilot plant is considered one of the important approaches within the project's phases. At the beginning of the project, it was intended to build an ideal olive mill in each of Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, but the committee members suggested that it would be better to construct a pilot waste treatment plant for Zibar produced by the olive mills, since most of olive mills in Jordan are of phase II and III. The committee members agreed that cooperation with cleaner production center (RAC/CCP) and European manufactures working in this field should be strengthened in order to choose the best technology used for pilot plant, which will comply with the national needs and the project budget.

Suggesting different sites for the pilot plant building: Since most of the olive mills are clustered in the north, it was suggested that the The second suggested site is Ekaidar, where most of the wastes in Jordan are

The committee members recommended two sites for the pilot plant: pilot plant could be constructed in Irbid especially in University of Sciences and Technology. being disposed, consequently the wastes transportation cost will be reduced and therefore this will guarantee that the olive mills owners will dispose the olive waste water in the plant. Determining the appropriate panel of experts for operating the pilot plant:

Most of the committee members suggested that the pilot plant will be operated and managed by the University of Sciences and Technology, since this university possesses the qualified experts who will be capable to operate the pilot. Also the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Municipalities will be well involved in the plant management. Determining the pilot plant budget:

Dr. Adnan clarified that the budget for the pilot plant provided by the European Union (EU) and the MoE is about 270,000 Euro. However, Mrs. Helena Naber stated that according to the annual work plan, the size of the pilot plant was only in a pilot scheme and in a very small scale, and she doubted that there might be enough adequate resources allocated for the construction of a large scale waste treatment plant which will serve a large number of olive mills. Furthermore she added that the proposal for the WTP should be more investigated whether it could be extended towards total waste management for this large number of olive mills. Most of the participants noted that the operating cost of the plant will depend on different factors such as the technology which will be used (Chemical or Biological), and the transportation of Zibar to the plant site. Also the participants stated that the socio- economic situation of the olive mills owners should be taken into account.

Motions & Recommendations:

90

The next Committee Meeting should be held approximately after 2-3 weeks in the

MoE, and a representative from Olive Oil Mills Owners Association should attend the next meeting due to his essential contribution. All the suggestions should be well investigated concerning the advantages and Searching for different offers from at least three different European companies Assessing and evaluating the best technology used and its specifications. disadvantages of each of the two proposed sites. working in this field.

Appendix 2.2 Minutes of 4th National Steering Committee Meeting for the Project "Integrated Waste Management for the Olive Oil Pressing Industry in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan" 15th May 2007

Objectives: Setting criteria for the pilot plant in order to select the most suitable location and management. Determining the characteristics of each of the proposed site/location according to pilot plant criteria. Discussing the offers presented by the interested companies specialized in olive oil wastewater treatment. Welcome & Introduction:
-

HE Eng. Faris Al Junidi (General Secretary) welcomed all the members for attending

the meeting and HE emphasized on the importance of the pilot plant for Jordan. However HE Eng. Faris Al Junidi urged that more efforts should be done to finalize the pilot plant construction as soon as possible.
-

Dr. Adnan Khdair( Project Manager) welcomed the steering committee members and The objectives of the pilot plant. The criteria to determine the suitable site for the pilot plant. Finally; the offers obtained from companies specialized in olive oil

gave a detailed presentation, which included the following:

waste treatment which were: Minutes Focal Points: Dr. Adnan suggested to discuss the characteristics of each of the proposed locations which are Jordan University for Science and technology (JUST) and the Ekeidar disposal site. Jordan University for Science and technology (JUST) Dr. Munjid Al Sharif (from JUST) explained to the committee that the university is willing to cooperate in the pilot plant construction and management, and he clarified for

92

the committee the most significant characteristics of the university as a location for the pilot plant;

An institution for training: JUST is an institution not just for training but also for developing, disseminating and applying science and technology, especially the waste treatment technology; since it has already a municipal wastewater treatment plant. Accessibility to public: the university is fully accessible to all olive mills to transport the waste water (Zibar). The infrastructure and public services are available in the university. The peace of land is available. The availability of experiences and knowledge in performing wastewater treatment and management.

HE. Eng. Faris Al Junidi asked if there is any possibility for the university to co-finance the pilot plant. However Dr. Munjid Al Sharif explained to HE Eng. Faris Al Junidi that the university will not be able to cooperate financially, but he added that the university possesses the knowledge and the capacity to operate and manage the plant in the future. Eng. Mohammad Moosa (Royal Scientific Society) suggested that it is preferred to establish the pilot plant in the university due to the availability of municipal waste water treatment plant which is important for the dilution of high BOD and COD found in the Zibar. Also Eng. Mohammad added that there are storage pools in the Ekaider Disposal Site, which are important to store the liquid wastes. Ms. Shireen Hijazi reported that the most important objective of the project is to develop the national capacity building; as a result Ms. Shireen opined that the university will be well qualified to host the pilot plant. Ekaider Disposal Site: Eng. Nawaf Al Jamal pointed out the characteristics of the Ekaider as a suitable location for the pilot plant:

Accessibility to public: Most of the solid and liquid wastes are disposed in this site. In addition; about 120,000-150,000 m3 of the olive mills wastewater (OMW) are being discharged in this site from October till May per year, and this will guarantee the sustainability of the plant. There are more than three storage pools for the liquid wastes generated from the olive mills.

93

The infrastructure and public services are available in the site. The peace of land is available. The availability of experiences and knowledge with the aid from JUST in wastewater treatment and management. The possibility of reusing the treated water for agriculture in order to reduce the environmental problem of the Ekaider.

Eng. Ghalib Gudah from Jordan River Foundation added that since the two locations are very close to each other, the pilot plant could be built in the Ekaider, with the help of the JUST. Dr. Mohammad Al Kashashneh clarified that the Moenv considers the Ekaidar site one of the hot spots in Jordan, due to that actions should be done in order to reduce its environmental impact. Dr. Mohammad Al Kashashneh suggested the pilot plant should be built in the Ekaidar site with the assistance of Jordan University of Sciences and Technology which has the knowledge and the long term experience to operate and manage the plant in the future. In addition, Eng. Jamal Al Batsh ( MoAgr.) emphasized that since the two locations have similar characteristics, it is better to construct the pilot plant in the Ekaidar site, since the number of olive mills in Jordan is increasing continuously. Also Eng. Jamal Al Batsh added that it is important to sign MoU between the Ministry of Environment, JUST, and Ministry of Municipalities which ensures the pilot plant sustainability. Eng. Ahmad Al Jazar stressed that the three storage pools for the liquid wastes existing in the Ekaidar site, makes this location highly suitable for the construction of the pilot plant. However he added that it is the responsibility of MoPIC to ensure the full implementation of the Project's inputs and outputs as set out in the project document. However Eng. Mohammad Al-Kooz opined that when the olive mills owners will be charged to dispose their wastes in the pilot plant, consequently high disposal fees will encourage most of them to dispose their wastes randomly and illegally, as a result this will defeat the objectives of the pilot plant. Eng. Raed bani Hani added that the transportation of the wastes should be put forward for consideration, since it is considered a serious problem for the mills owners. Eng. Ahmad Saeed ( Project's focal point) and Ms. Helena Naber (UNDP Jordan) stressed out that one of the project's objectives is to promote capacity building and research capacity, and to enhance access to outside expertise.

94

Motions & Recommendations: The next Committee Meeting should be held approximately after one week in the Following up with JUST, and Ministry of Municipalities in order to receive their MoE, and ensuring all the representatives will be attending. approval which confirms their willingness to host the pilot plant.

Appendix 2.3 Minutes of 5th National Steering Committee Meeting for the Project "Integrated Waste Management for the Olive Oil Pressing Industry in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan" 23rd May 2007

Objectives: Determining the pilot plant location. Identifying the pilot plant specifications.

Welcome & Introduction:


-

Dr. Adnan Khdair( Project Manager) welcomed the steering committee members and The objectives of the pilot plant. The criteria to determine the suitable site for the pilot plant. Finally; the offers obtained from companies specialized in olive oil

delivered a detailed presentation, which included the following:

waste treatment which were: Bio-4 waste Treatment industry, AquaTec OLIVIA, Lachirama). Minutes Focal Points:
-

Eng. Abdulla Al Khawaldeh (Olive Oil Mills Owners Association) stated that olive oil wastewater is considered a major problem for most of the olive mills owners. OMW can not be disposed with the domestic wastewater, due to its high organic content. However Eng. Abdulla also remarked that the high cost required for the transportation of OMW is a main problem for the mills owners and should be solved out as soon as possible. Furthermore he stated that the pilot plant should be constructed in the Ekaidar site.

Eng. Jamal Al Nawaf stated that the storage lagoons in the Ekaidar site, which are used for OMW, are one of the most important features for this location. Eng. Jamal noted that the pilot plant could be a major initiative to build a large scale plant, which can help to solve the OMW environmental problem in the near future.

96

Eng. Ahmad Al Saed stressed out that the Ministry of Environment focuses mainly on the delivery and sustainability of the project's outputs, and the main objective of the pilot plant is (1) to promote capacity building and research, and to enhance access to outside expertise, (2) to set a monitoring strategy to be adopted by the relevant ministries and/or local authorities in controlling olive oil milling and production, (3) and finally to undertake awareness activities. However Eng. Ahmad noted that the steering committee should focus to determine the suitable location for the pilot plant.

Dr. Basem Al Abasi suggested that we should rely on local companies and individuals in the construction of the pilot plant, in addition, the steering committee should study thoroughly the pilot plant specifications such as defining the type of the treatment technology before moving forward with the invitation to tender.

All the members agreed that the steering committee and its experts should address and follow up the procurement standards for the pilot plant. Eng. Abdulla Al Khawaldeh pointed out that an oversight committee should be formed in order to evaluate the procurement process. However Eng. Ahmad Al Jazzar noted that the oversight committee might not have the sufficient ability to determine the pilot plant specifications in the procurement process.

Dr. Mohammad Khashashneh stressed out that it is better to build a small scale pilot plant in the beginning, and then it can be extended toward a large scale one. Dr. Mohammad also remarked that Jordan University of Sciences and Technology and Ministry of Municipalities may enter into a mutual aid agreement to properly operate and manage the pilot plant.

Eng. Mohammad Moosa added that the effluents' requirements should be characterized firstly, in order to meet the Jordanian specifications for the wastewater.

Eng. Riyad Zoebi clarified that the pilot plant is a fundamental project to improve local capacity building, and he suggested that JUST is well qualified to operate and manage the pilot plant.

97

Conclusions: o The pilot plant technical specifications were identified. o An official approval was received from JUST, expressing their willingness to host the pilot plant. While the Ministry of Municipalities has not sent any approval yet. o A Memorandum of Understanding should be signed upon agreement with JUST. o The participation of the steering committee in the pilot palnt procurement process is a must, in order to meet the national requirements.

Appendix 2.4 Minutes of the Third Regional Steering Committee Meeting 27th Aug. 2007 Radisson SAS Hotel Amman Jordan Objective: To collect feedback on national levels on the project activities, and expected outputs in the next phases. The Regional Steering Committee Meeting consisted of four sessions: Session I: Was inaugurated under the patronage of HE. Eng. Khalid Irani (Minister of Environment Jordan). Dr. Saleem Hamadeh (Project Regional Coordinator) facilitated this session, which consisted of statements for: HE. Eng. Khalid Irani (Minister of Environment Jordan). Ms. Mona Hidar (UNDP- Deputy Resident Representative). Mrs. Angelina Eichhorst (Representative of the EU Delegation Jordan). Dr. Akram AlKhouri (Director General of General Commissions of Environmental Affairs Syria). Dr. Berj Hatjian (Director General of Environment Lebanon) Session II: Consisted of presentations made by the Project Managers who outlined the outputs and the next phases: Dr. Marwan Dimashki (National Project Manager- Syria). Mrs. Samar Khalil (National Project Manager- Lebanon). Dr. Adnan Khdair (National Project Manager- Jordan). Session III: Dr. Saleem Hamadeh facilitated a time for discussion with all the presenters and the audience. The following main points were mentioned by the participants: - It was suggested that the pilot plants should be framed in terms of long-term project sustainability, and more explicit emphasis should be given to the identification of the advantages, limitations and specifications of waste water treatment technologies, so that the treated water could be reused in agriculture or in the olive mills. - The Syrian Team stated that Syria has been participating during the last two years in a regional project funded by the Italian Government and the International Olive Oil Council for the use of olive mill wastewater in agriculture. Results obtained during this project demonstrated the possible use of OMWW on agricultural lands and for irrigating olive orchards, vineyards, and other crops, with noticeable increase in yields. However all the participants agreed that this practice should be regulated through appropriate legislation that specifies the maximum quantity of vegetable water that may be spread on the land and the ways in which it may be spread. - To enhance a full scale research, concerning possible treatment technology for the olive oil pressing wastes.

- The pilot plant will serve as a model to introduce the CP (Cleaner Production) process for olive pressing as a main tool to reduce the quantities of wastes, enhance its quality, and enable its final treatment to a cost effective one. Session IV: Moderated by Mr. Edgard Chehab UNDP Energy & Environmental Program Manager. -Mr. Edgard Chehab stressed on four main issues to be discussed in the meeting: All the key activities of the project are exposed to prior review and approval by the EU according to the project document. Therefore, justifications should be made for decisions made, concerning the choice and the implementation of the pilot plants in the three participating countries in the project. The project team should use specific criteria for the selection of olive mills for auditing or the location of the pilot project, etc The need to extend the duration of the project to be able to complete all the activities listed in the project document. To adopt one methodological approach between the three countries and this could be maintained by submitting reports on monthly basis. -HE. Eng. Faris Al-Junidi (Secretary General- MoEnv- Jordan) said that each country could choose the methodology according to its needs. However HE. Eng. Faris Al-Junidi advised that one methodology could be applied in order to have accurate comparison between the obtained results. Dr. Adnan Khdair (Project Manager- Jordan) noted that the National Steering Committee determined the best specifications for the pilot plant, and accordingly the tender document was prepared in June, and it was submitted to the UNDP for the evaluation. -Dr. Marwan Dimashki (Project Manager Syria) stated that Syria submitted its proposal and justification regarding the pilot plant. -Mr. Edgard pointed out that a justification for the choice of the pilot project should be submitted for review before final launching.
-Eng. Abir Zeno (Energy & Env. Team Leader UNDP- Syria) emphasized on selecting specific

parameters when estimating the cost of environmental degradation. This will ensure the consistency among the three countries. -Since there is environmental monitoring strategy in Jordan, Dr. Adnan Khdair (Project ManagerJordan) stated that the environmental degradation cost was very low in Jordan, and different parameters were used than in Syria and Lebanon. -Dr. Marwan Dimashki (Project Manager- Syria) pointed out that there was a delay in producing the national report on the cost of environmental degradation, due to the difficulty in employing national experts for the project in Syria.
-Dr. Akram AlKhouri (Director General of General Commissions of Environmental Affairs

Syria) stated that there are different parameters which can be used for evaluating the cost of
100

environmental degradation in the three countries. However, he suggested applying different parameters according to the needs of each country. -Mrs. Olfat Hamdan (Focal point Lebanon) raised the concern that there isnt yet any used technology in other olive producing countries which can solve the problem of the Olive Oil Waste Water, since the BOD and COD of the OMW differ from the domestic water. She stressed out on the necessity to concentrate our efforts in locating for a newly developed technology, by which we can eventually determine the approach of the pilot plant for each country.
-Dr. Berj Hatjian (Director General of Environment Lebanon) commented on the absence of the

SMAP representative. Also he raised the concern on the following issues: Each country should submit a report indicating the lessons obtained from this project. Therefore this would provide an opportunity to share the learnt lessons. To develop a table matrix that gives an indication where each country stands on their progress work. To develop Quality control system which could monitor the ongoing activities for each country and allow better coordination and information management between the three countries. Each country should introduce the added value, which will ensure the exchange of information between the countries and the identification of problems with their corrective actions. -Dr. Saleem Hamadeh (Project Regional Coordinator) described how the management, financial, and technical quality control for the project are being achieved in the three countries by the Project Regional Coordinator. He said that the financial quality control was achieved by conducting meetings with the financial managers and the focal point in each Ministry of Environment in the three participating countries. Also he added that the Regional Coordinator carries out monthly basis monitoring visits to each country, to ensure the management quality control. In addition each country submits a progress report, which shows the activities with their progress status, challenges, and actions required. -Dr. Saleem agreed that identifying the added values for each country is an excellent idea, and should be applied as soon as possible. -Dr. Saleem Hamadeh stressed out on the expected budget revision that should be done as soon as possible to ensure its compliance with the request of an extension period. -Mrs. Hamdan and Dr. Khdair pointed out that actions should be done as soon as possible, concerning the tendering process for the pilot plant. -Mr. Edgard Chehab stressed on the necessity to scrutinize the tender book of the pilot plant from technical point of view, to avoid confusions with the suppliers, and to be in line with the EU and UNDP regulations and procedures. Recommendations: To develop a table matrix indicating where each country stands in its work progress. Each country should introduce the added value to its progress report, which will ensure the exchange of information between the countries and the identification of problems with their corrective actions.
101

To make sure that the three countries are following the same methodologies while implementing the project activities. A request for extension with a solid justification should be submitted as soon as possible.

Appendix 2.5 Meeting with EC-RMSU in Jordan 7th Nov.2007 Ministry of Environment The meeting with EC-RMSU representatives was held on 7th Nov. 2007 in the Ministry of Environment. The following project members and project staff attended the meeting: Mr. Javier Bollino (EC- RMSU). Mrs. Tea Trnroos (EC- RMSU). Mrs. Anna Horrera (EC- RMSU). Mr. Omar Abu Eid (EC- Delegation Jordan) Dr. Saleem Hamadeh (Regional Coordinator) Eng. Ahmad Russan (MoEnv- Focal Point) Dr. Adnan Khdair (Project Manager) Shirin Haddadin ( Project Assistant) Dr. Adnan Khdair welcomed the representatives of EU delegation in Jordan for attending the meeting. He extended his welcome to Mr. Javier Bollino, Mrs. Tea, Mrs. Anna, Mr. Omar Abu Eid, Mr. Saleem and Eng. Ahmad Rousan. Dr. Adnan Khdair (Project Manager) presented the results obtained during the implementation of the project phases. He also presented the GIS maps of olive mills and hot spot areas, the methods of wastewater discharge being practiced by mills owners, and the interest of mills owners to invest in waste management. In addition he presented the cleaner production options, the basic criteria for selecting olive mills for conducting the environmental auditing, he also clarified how the project team and the national steering committee had decided to establish an integrated olive mill wastewater (OMW) treatment plant in the north of the country in Jordan University of Sciences and Technology campus. He also presented the offers obtained form different international companies specialized in waste treatment. The second session was an open discussion: Mr. Javier appreciated all the work done by the project team, and he assured that the project team would keep on encouraging the involvement of the stakeholders. He added that the pilot plant should be the focus in 2008, as the pilot plant mainly will maintain the sustainability of the project, He also mentioned that the olive oil project has succeeded to meet the challenges, where the project has produced comprehensive study and database of the current situation on olive oil production following similar methodology in the three participating countries. In response to Mr. Javier's question regarding the cost of the pilot plant estimated by the companies. Dr. Adnan Khdair explained that not all technology options proposed by the companies will be selected; the main approach of the pilot plant is to be an institution for training especially for the olive oil waste treatment technology. Dr. Saleem Hamadeh (Project Regional Coordinator) delivered a short presentation giving an overview about the project, its objectives, components, budget and activities.

103

Dr. Saleem also presented the methodology and mechanisms which were followed by the three countries for the implementation of the project phases. He also elaborated and complemented on the necessity on requesting an extension period. Dr. Saleem said that a request of extension has been submitted to EC-RMSU delegation in Cairo: - The pilot plant will be built in the three countries and will be completed with the next few months. To guarantee the pilot plant sustainability, it needs to be experimented in an olive pressing season. - The progress within the tender book was very slow. This was partly due to the delay in executing the international experts from RAC-CP. RAC-CP has signed the project document in October/2007. The international experts will start their mission in the region on 27th of Nov. - An updated work plan for 2008 has been prepared with the completion dates of each project activity. - Guaranteed savings have been analyzed in a separate report, with the objective of studying the feasibility of any possible project extension, the guaranteed savings have been redistributed on active budget lines with related and proper justifications. This report was submitted to the EC delegation in Cairo. Mr. Javier indicated that SMAP II will end its two ongoing projects by the middle of the next year. And this may affect the overall decision regarding the extension period which will be till next olive pressing season. Mr. Javier explained that SMAP II contracts will be finished by the end of next February. Mr. Omar Abu Eid expressed his gratitude to the project team. He explained to the attendees that JUST is the most suitable location for the pilot plant. Since the university possesses a wide knowledge and experience in wastes treatment. EC- Delegations, Mr. Abu Eid, Dr. Hamadeh, and Dr. Khdair met with Eng. Faris Al Junaidi Secretary General. Eng. Faris Al Junidi extended his welcome to the guests and thanked the project team for their efforts. In addition he emphasized on the importance of speeding up the bidding process for the pilot plant, since that UNDP bidding procedures may take some time. After the meeting at the MoEnv, The participants were invited to a field trip to visit two olive mills and the pilot plant site in JUST. The two olive mills were Al Balqa Mill and Jebal Ajloon Mill. The participants were introduced to the different pressing techniques used in the mills. The field trip to pilot plant site was organized by Dr. Munther Sharif/ Queen Rania Al Abdullah Center for Environmental Science and Technology.

APPENDIX 6 PILOT PLANT JUSTIFICATION

137

# Description Name Pilot Project Brief description of the High organic content process water from olive oil manufacturing Project (OMWolive mill wastewater) represents one of the most important environmental problems in the Mediterranean region. New technology was developed with special attention to the unique characteristics of olive processing residues and has a modular design that enables it to be adapted for individual disposal and processing requirements within the respective economical constraints. The core element of the technology is a multiple stage anaerobic biological process. One component of the project entitled "Integrated Waste Management for the Olive Oil Pressing Industries in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan" consists of establishing a pilot waste treatment plant for the treatment of olive mills wastewater in Jordan. There is a need for introducing clean production technologies and proper environmental waste managements system in the mills. The approach would include minimization of water consumption in production by using ecological decanters, utilization of oil/water separators at the mills to recover residual oil and reduce pollution loads to the surrounding environment. The approach concluded that there is an urgent need to set an emergency plan to handle the olive mills wastewater and avoid its discharge to the environment. The olive oil industries in Jordan do nothing in terms of waste management, so introducing cleaner production options, prevention, control and treatment measures in olive oil industries should be introduced. Training of operators and technical assistance for stakeholders to encourage them to maintain principles of green processing of olive oil is essential. The government should set regulations and standards for the olive oil effluents and enforce these regulations by adequate monitoring strategy. Considering the scarce availability of water resources, it becomes evident that the conservation and reuse of every available amount of water in Jordan is very crucial, and the preservation of the available water resources from pollution should receive extreme attention. Therefore, the treatment of olive mills wastewater is needed.

138

Description Finally, it is worth noting that the waste treatment plant will be extremely beneficial in building capacity in modern wastewater treatment technologies and developing know-how in treatment techniques at the Ministry of Environment.

Justification in the choice In latest discussions with the National Steering Committee members during successive steering committee meetings which were held in April 11, May 15 and 23, 2007, it was agreed that Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST) is appropriate as the location for the pilot plant. Contacts have been built with many companies to explore the different methods which can be used for the construction of such a pilot plant in Jordan. It is understood from the project document that the criteria for selecting the pilot plant location should include but not limit to the following: "1) Geographical area, 2) The accessibility to public, 3) Actual process used, etc. Such pilot facilities constitute practical means and visual tools to achieve the targets or mandates of the proposed Memorandums of Understanding". Accordingly JUST possesses the following characteristics: JUST is an institution for training, developing, disseminating and applying science and technology, especially for the waste treatment technology; since it has already a municipal wastewater treatment plant and medical waste incinerator. The university is fully accessible to all olive mills to transport the waste water (Zibar). The infrastructure and public services are available in the university 24 hrs. The land is available "they offer 10,000 m2". Furthermore, the pilot projects will be accessible to interested institutions or researchers to conduct specific studies and research. The main objective of the project is national capacity building in management of olive mills waste, so the plant will be used as a teaching tool to enhance the understanding of the operational parameters and problems associated with the olive oil waste water treatment plant. The university possesses the experience and knowledge to successfully operate the plant at long term. Therefore this will assure maintaining the sustainability and continuation of the project.

139

Description The university is very close to the Akeidar Dump Site (6 km to the east of campus) where most of the olive mills wastes are stored, since most of the mills in Jordan are situated in the north part of the country. Regarding choosing the type of pilot plant, the Ministry of Environment, the national steering committee and the stakeholders prefer to have a waste treatment plant for the olive oil mills effluent because it constitutes a problem for them. The pilot plant will not solve the problem at short term but it will be used for capacity building and training on treatment options which might be adopted at the long term in Jordan. In Jordan most of olive oil mills were built after 1980, so they can be considered as modern one, where 72% of the mills use the three phases and 22% use the two phases technology. This is why Jordan needs to have a waste treatment plant as a pilot plant. In contradiction most mills in Syria and Lebanon are aging and traditional mills which are very polluted and consume a lot of water and produce a lot of waste, so the new two and three phases technology should be introduced there.

Main methodology The implementation of this phase and namely the success of the proposed audits and pilot projects rely on the efficient cooperation among the different stakeholders (relevant Ministries, owners/ operators of industrial facilities for oil production and/ or olive oil waste re-use, syndicates, co-operatives and associations) and the project team in each of the beneficiary countries. Enabling to select the proper alternative a cost/benefit analysis for different alternatives (bouquet of measures) will be undertaken to select the best one. Other technical criteria should be developed and considered accordingly. A series of recommendations for improving the most suitable option, and the practices used for managing olive oil waste will be identified at the end of this exercise. Once identified a series of eligibility criteria will be drawn in close collaboration with the various stakeholders enabling to select the most suitable facilities in the three countries to implement the identified recommendations and install what is so called pilot facilities. The criteria should include but not limit to the followings: 1) geographical area, 2) the accessibility to public, 3) actual process used, etc. Such pilot facilities constitute practical means and visual tools to achieve the targets or mandates of the proposed Memorandums of Understanding (Section 1.6). The selection of pilot projects will be undertaken by the steering committee based on set criteria. The steering committee of each country will decide on the ownership of the pilot projects in a justified way enabling to guarantee its sustainability. The project will draw the operational and maintenance costs of each pilot project. Accordingly, the fees collected from olive oil producers
140

Description who are using those facilities will recover those costs. Furthermore, the pilot projects will be accessible to interested institutions or researchers to conduct specific studies and research. All of the modernized ones are private owned and using them for demonstration purposes is not going to be easy. The wisdom behind this approach is to introduce the CP process for olive pressing as main tool to reduce the quantities and enhance the quality of waste enabling its final treatment to cost effective.

Methodology Change & Redefinition Approach of the project field activities

The methodology used to select the pilot project was as follows: The national steering committee discussed several options for the pilot project and recommended a waste treatment plant as a pilot plant. The stakeholders recommended a waste treatment plant during a series of training workshops which were held in June (Wed. 20th, Thurs. 21st, Sun. 24th, Tues. 26th, and Thurs. 28th ) 2007. Letter was sent by the Ministry of Environment to JUST, and an official approval was received on 23rd May 2007 from the university, expressing their willingness to host the pilot plant. A Memorandum of Understanding will be signed between the Ministry of Environment and JUST. The plant will be used for national capacity building in management of olive mills waste, and a teaching tools by introducing cleaner production options, prevention, control and treatment measures in olive oil industries to enhance the understanding of the operational parameters and problems associated with the olive oil waste water treatment plant. The recommended CP and treatment options will be implemented.

Terms of Reference Project Title Project number Post Title Location 1. BACKGROUND 1.1. The context: Lebanon, Syria and Jordan rely heavily on olive and olive oil production for local consumption as well as for export. However, olive oil production in these countries is a polluting industry, which contributes to the degradation of water quality and agricultural lands due to the discharge of waste effluents (pomace and vegetation water) in rivers, water bodies and land without prior treatment. In response to these challenges, UNDP and the Ministry of Environment of Lebanon with the financial support of the European Commission and in close collaboration with the concerned national institutions in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan are implementing a project titled the Integrated Management for the Olive Oil production wastes in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. 1.2. The Projects aim The present project aims at introducing an integrated waste management system to the olive oil industry in the participating countries by building relevant expertise, setting standards, limits and introducing cleaner production options, in addition to prevention measures, control and treatment options along with a monitoring strategy and awareness activities to present the projects achievements and improve on the olive oil production. Therefore, introducing an integrated olive oil waste management scheme leads to the fulfillment of environmental directives stipulated in several regional and international agreements signed by Lebanon, Syria an Jordan, and promoting sustainable development and growth. Lebanon, Syria and Jordan constitute a typical example for such regional project for the regulation and control of pollution incurred by olive oil production due to their geographical setting creating a physical continuum, their common environmental : : : : Integrated Management of Olive Oil production Wastes In Lebanon, Syria and Jordan- IMOOPW 00040084 Cleaner Production Expert RAC/CP& Olive Oil Waste Expert RAC/CP Beirut- Lebanon

The request for clarification and

161

the response shall be in writing and no change in price or substance of the Proposal shall be sought, offered or permitted.

4.24.PRELIMINARY EXAMINATION The Purchaser will examine the Proposals to determine whether they are complete, whether any computational errors have been made, whether the documents have been properly signed, and whether the Proposals are generally in order. Arithmetical errors will be rectified on the following basis: If there is a discrepancy between the unit price and the total price that is obtained by multiplying the unit price and quantity, the unit price shall prevail and the total price shall be corrected. If the Offeror does not accept the correction of errors, its Proposal will be rejected. If there is a discrepancy between words and figures the amount in words will prevail. Prior to the detailed evaluation, the Purchaser will determine the substantial responsiveness of each Proposal to the Request for Proposals (RFP). For purposes of these Clauses, a substantially responsive Proposal is one which conforms to all the terms and conditions of the RFP without material deviations. The Purchasers determination of a Proposals responsiveness is based on the contents of the Proposal itself without recourse to extrinsic evidence. A Proposal determined as not substantially responsive will be rejected by the Purchaser and may not subsequently be made responsive by the Offeror by correction of the non-conformity. 4.25.EVALUATION AND COMPARISON OF PROPOSALS A two-stage procedure is utilized in evaluating the proposals, with evaluation of the technical proposal being completed prior to any price proposal being opened and compared. The price proposal of the Proposals will be opened only for submissions that passed the minimum technical score of 70% of the obtainable score of 1000 points in the evaluation of the technical proposals. The technical proposal is evaluated on the basis of its responsiveness to the Term of Reference (TOR). In the Second Stage, the price proposal of all contractors, who have attained minimum 70% score in the technical evaluation, will be opened and the price of each technical mark will be calculated by dividing the price over the technical scores for each proposal, as shown in the following formula: Cmark = Cproposal/Tscore where, Cmark is the cost (in US Dollars) for each technical mark, Cproposal is the total cost of the proposal (in US Dollars) Tscore is the total number of scores of the proposal (out of 1000 points) The contract will be awarded to the Contractor offering the lowest Cmark.
