Category: Kuwait

Management of the International Exhibition of Inventions has awarded the Kuwaiti inventor, Dr Meshari Al- Mutairi, its golden prize for making a device to treat oil-polluted soil. Al-Mutairi, in remarks to KUNA, dedicated the internationally renowned award to Their Highnesses the Amir, the Crown Prince, the Prime Minister and the Kuwaiti people. He also expressed gratitude to the State of Kuwait Permanent Representative at the UN and International Organizations in Geneva, Ambassador Jamal Al-Ghunaim, for facilitating his participation in the exhibition competition.

Al-Mutairi said it had dawned on him to create a method for cleansing oil soaked soil when the Iraqi occupiers torched and damaged Kuwaiti oil installations, forming pools of crude oil and polluting the country’s soil.

The problem preoccupied Al- Mutairi during his studies in Britain in environmental engineering till he had read and fathomed inner meaning of the Quranic verse, “we have made everything alive from water,” thus he had started examining ways to clean the soil with water, rather than chemical substances. Al-Mutairi, whose invention was accredited by Kuwait Oil Company, said the technique is applicable in various kinds of soil of other countries.

The inventor said he would travel to Oman to market his invention in the GCC country. Al-Mutairi had taken part in the exhibition along with another talented Kuwaiti, Hussein bou Mejdad, a firefighter, who displayed a device for unlocking doors — a tool that can be quite useful especially in distressing conditions like putting out fires. Al-Ghunaim meanwhile affirmed that the golden award depicted honoring for the State of Kuwait’s care for creative citizens. The exhibition, scheduled April 11-15, has grouped 822 inventors from 40 countries.
