TITLE: Integrated industrial solid waste management in Egypt (LIFE99 TCY/ET/072)

CLIENT: Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency / EU – LIFE 3rd Countries

DURATION: 5/2001 – 5/2003

DESCRIPTION:
The objective of the project was to develop an integrated plan (local action plan) for the management of industrial solid waste in the 6th of October industrial estate, in order to serve in the future as a model for the overall industrial solid waste management in Egypt. The provision of support to build up capacity for the management of industrial solid waste was within the project’s scope.

The project included the selection of the state of the art practices for industrial solid waste management (ISWM), as well as, alternative techniques and methods for solid waste treatment and disposal. The possibilities of waste minimization and waste exchange were also examined, as well as the Life Cycle Assessment for several industrial products.

An inventory was developed in the project’s framework, containing 700 industrial facilities, which were examined regarding their processes and solid waste. Waste factors were used (rapid assessment) and a database was developed.

An Action Plan was developed, as well as tender document for the Industrial Solid Waste Management system of the 6th of October. The project also included the training of the governmental personnel on the implementation and monitoring of the system. The results were disseminated through leaflets, workshops and the web.

EPEM was the external technical consultant to the EEAA. For further information: http://www.eeaa.gov.eg/iiswm/

TITLE: Action plan for the site location and the development of the design, operation and EIA methods of sanitary landfills in Egyptian governorates (LIFE98 TCY/ET/152)

CLIENT: Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency / EU – LIFE 3rd Countries

DURATION: 3/1999 – 9/2002

DESCRIPTION:
EPEM was the external technical consultant to the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency. The project’s objectives included:

  • Identification of the optimal areas (site selection) for the construction of landfill sites in the 27 Egyptian governorates
  • Identification of best practices for solid waste treatment
  • Development of decision support tools for solid waste management
  • Promotion of know how transfer to the Egyptian competent authorities
  • Restructure of the solid waste management strategy in Egypt

The project consisted of several innovations, mainly due to the methods that were developed in order to identify the optimal landfill sites. The project also included the formulation of an action plan (estimation of the investment and operational costs of the National Program for sanitary landfilling, set-up of the criteria for the selection of the financing scheme that will be used in order to implement and operate the Program and set-up of the environmental, geographic and economic priorities of the Program) and support / dissemination actions for the reinforcement of administrative structures and the promotion of the action plan (training of the EEAA staff and formulation of relevant additional executive regulations).
