Waste Management & Recycling

Industrial Waste Management and Waste Recycling

This service involves implementation of waste Management systems and recycling initiatives in industries. 

This adds value to the industry and creates further economic opportunities from newly developed products based on the sustainable use of generated waste from the production process.

It is likely that all industries have an amount of their output that can be reused or recycled hence save costs and creates both economic and environmental opportunities. 

The ENCPC is providing technical assistance for the Egyptian industry on industrial waste management and recycling. The service includes assessment of generated waste in terms of quantity and characteristics. This also includes the identification of the best options for management and handling of waste. This will accordingly lead to creation of added value products for the industry by turning the waste to added value products with economical and environmental benefits.


Waste Valorisation and Exchange Projects

1. PET scrap recycling

The problem is about 20% of the post-consumer plastic bottles are being collected for recycling, and a growing percentage of the bottles that are being collected are being exported to Asia.

Recycling of PET is one of the solutions of plastic pollution, so PET waste is pelletized and sold for fiber and carpet producer to enter the fabrication process. Finally it is possible to "close the loop" of the plastic materials by recycling plastic products and create new useful products when a good management is applied for the recycling industry in the presence of applicable regulations that tends to reduce the dominance of collectors and increase the awareness of the recycling.

The ENCPC has conducted a Market research of the PET waste in Egypt for Spria Egypt Company. The study is investigating the quantities, prices and consumption of scraps and products for PET. The first progress report and the final report were delivered to the company.
