The Egyptian government will work with Ireny Estmalek, a famous Egyptian specialist in waste disposal and water desalination plants construction, to build the biggest water desalination plant in Al-Gabal Al-Asfar.
The project will be implemented in a cooperation agreement concluded by Egypt, Germany and Spain as well as other countries.
The plant will offer 2.1 trillion cubic meters of water upon its operation. Sewage water will be processed and will be used in irrigation.
Due to Estmalek efforts in this field, Germany became a leader in waste disposal and desalination in the world.
It is worth noting that Estmalek’s certificate, awarded to her by Ain Shams University, was not recognized in Germany. Yet, she worked for 6 months free of charge to prove to the Germans and to the international community the potential of Egyptian engineers.
In a short period, the Egyptian specialist was promoted as deputy chairperson of the water desalination office in Germany.
The water desalination and waste disposal adds 50 billion dollars a year to the German treasury, leading the world countries.
She also took part in various projects in Turkey, Serbia, Bosnia, Zimbabwe, Vietnam, China and Iraq.
