Ministry of Environment to Double Recycling Centres by 2030

The plan is to double the number of recycling plants across Egypt from 28 to 56 by 2030.

The Ministry of Environment is planning to double the number of recycling plants across Egypt from 28 to 56 by 2030. They also plan to do the same with carbon emission observatories, bringing them up from 115 to 300 in order to cut down on emissions by 50%.


The main sources of carbon emissions in Egypt are vehicles, factories, and garbage. Thus far, 90 factory chimneys have been connected to the national emissions network, while bio-gas units have been distributed to farmers to curb the burning of rice straw.
