Egypt Signs Agreement with Korean Company to Build Waste-Recycling Plants

The agreements comes as part of a strategy to bring modern technologies to Egypt.

Waste Recycling

A leader in the field of solid waste conversion technology, JST will aid Egypt in establishing plants to produce alternative fuels via waste-recycling, with the agreement coming as part of the Ministry for Military Production’s strategy of fostering partnerships with international companies to bring modern technologies to Egypt.

The move also comes as a part of Egypt’s steady move away from reliance on coal for energy; just last month, the governorate of Qalyubia inaugurated its first waste-recycling plant, which can turn up to 4,000 tons of waste per day into clean energy. It’s estimated that Egypt produces around 55,000 tons of solid and organic waste per day.
