UK-based waste management company, BlueMAC, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Egypt's National Organisation for Military Production, to form a waste management joint venture in Egypt.
Further details of whether waste will be recycled to produce energy, which is BlueMac's specialty, or whether this co-operation is merely for waste-management machinery only, weren't explicitly mentioned. The move comes at a time when Egypt is proactively venturing into alternative and clean energy production, from the megalithic record-breaking Aswan Benban Solar park, to the soon to be built $600 Million Al Wadi AlJadid Solar Park.
“I am delighted to witness the signing of this MoU," UK trade envoy to Egypt Sir Jeffrey Donaldson said. "I am especially pleased to see that a world class company from Northern Ireland is supporting Egypt’s growing expertise in this sector. This newly agreed cooperation reflects our commitment to invest in Egypt and rest of Africa to fulfil our objective to be the largest G7 investor in Africa by 2022."
