Resource Efficiency and Cleaner Production

Chemicals, Water, Raw Material, Energy

The resource efficiency and cleaner production service promotes the sustainable use of natural resources and conservation of raw materials for the local Egyptian industry. The service helps the industries to identify with the gaps in their production process which lead to over consumption of raw materials hence contribute to increase in production costs.  The implementation of resource efficiency and cleaner production practices will therefore help the industry gain economic and environmental competiveness in addition to improved production efficiency.

EIA’s

Any industrial activity has an environmental impact, hence a negative ecological footprint. Industries should therefore identify with their environmental impacts and try to reduce them.

Among the services provided by the Egyptian National Cleaner Production Centre is the environmental impact assessment (EIA), this assessment explains the possible positive or negative impact that a proposed project may have on the environment, together consisting of the natural, social and economic aspects.

The centre provides this service to assist companies in their registration phase to acquire their operational licences. The Environmental Impact Assessment is an important step for registering any industrial activity; in addition to that companies which are expanding or looking forward to enhance their economic and environmental performances will also conduct this study.

The service is therefore considered a step forward in the compliance action plan of any company.
