news item image
Egypt's Industrial Products company has signed a contract with the National Company for Animal Production of the National Service Projects Organization, to establish Egypt’s first factory to generate electricity from biogas in Sadat City, reported the Egypt Independent.
The factory will annually process 85,000 tons of cattle dung to produce one megawatt/hour of electricity to be connected to Egypt's national electricity grid.
It will also produce more than 80,000 tons of high-quality organic fertiliser, proven to be effective in restoring agricultural soil fertility and doubling its productivity.
The factory also contributes to reducing greenhouse emissions by about 5,000 tons of carbon dioxide.
The plant is demonstrative of cooperation between the private sector and state agencies in electricity production from livestock dung. This is in line with the COP27 outputs, which encouraged the Egyptian investor to invest green in the fields of clean energy.
