CAIRO: Minister Mohamed Ahmed Morsi has held discussions with Robert Falk, the chairman of the board of directors of Green Tech Egypt, about the establishment of factories to convert waste into electrical energy, the Egyptian Ministry of Military Production announced.

Morsi stressed Egypt’s interest in implementing rapidly the strategy of converting municipal solid waste into energy. He said that governorates have been identified for implementing the system, and that the ministry seeks to employ all its manufacturing, technological and human capabilities to convert waste into smart energy solutions.

Falk reviewed the feasibility study carried out by the company for the sites of Shabramant and Abu Rawash for implementing the project, as well as the executive steps for establishing a joint-stock company to operate factories that convert waste into electrical energy within the framework of the protocol signed between the Ministry of Military Production and Green Tech in October.

Mohamed Bakr, the ministry spokesman, confirmed that this was one of a series of meetings to follow up on the conversion project, adding that it will bring great economic and environmental returns for the state.
