Dr. Yasmine Fouad, Minister of Environment, confirmed that an agreement will soon be signed to establish the first waste-to-energy plant in Giza Governorate, using German technology, as part of green investment projects, at a total cost of $150 million.

The minister explained that the environment has now become closely linked to the global economic system, and in Egypt, the connection was with the fields of new and renewable energy, but there are other important fields, where attention is paid to the files of waste and reserves, and work has been done vigorously on these files,

It is worth noting that a project to establish the first plant to convert waste into energy, in Giza Governorate, is subject to the work and supervision of the agency affiliated with the Ministry of Environment, which is the Waste Management Regulatory Authority.

That authority is responsible for organizing cooperation between all actors in the waste system based on the new waste law issued in 2020 and its implementing regulations.
