Implementation of the Egyptian Pollution Abatement Project (EPAPII) in collaboration with the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA), the World Bank (WB), the European Investment Bank (EIB), the Japanese Bank for international cooperation (JBIC), the French Development Agency (AFD), in addition to the European Commission (EC), and the Government of Finland

In the framework of implementation of Egyptian Pollution Abatement Project (EPAPII)-World Bank Funded Project, the ENCPC with a consortium of international experts are implementing an assignment on Preparation of Cleaner Production Audits and of a Cleaner Production Promotion Plan. The following activities were carried out under each task of the assignment as follows:


1. Implementation of cleaner technology audits in the industrial sector:

The ENCPC has performed 65 quick scan visits for different companies inside hot spot areas through. Based on that a detailed 14 cleaner production in-plant assessment and audits for 6 companies were carried out. ENCPC team prepared a technical specification for Delta Steel Company for new project at the arc furnace department to abatement the dust emissions inside the work environment and ambient area.
