L.E. 22 million for Achieving the Environmental Compliance of the Egyptian enterprises
HEIGHT=50 align=right vspace=2 hspace=2> In its last meeting on June 21, 2006 the Executive Committee of Achieving Compliance in Industry (ACI) agreed to implement Cleaner Production (CP) Projects in SME's at the value of L.E. 22 million. ACI is a component of the Danida funded Environmental Sector Program (ESP), anchored in Federation of Egyptian Industries. The projects will be implemented in 11 factories from different governorates operating in several industrial sectors: 2 from the engineering sector, 3 from the textile sector, 3 from the chemical sector, and 3 from the food sector. Cleaner production projects comprised applications for energy efficiency improvement in 5 factories working in the engineering, chemical, and food sectors. These projects aim at adjusting the status of factories with environmental rules and regulations, which in turn results in improving the quality of products and increasing their competitiveness, both in the local market and internationally. Moreover, such projects shall have an impact on saving in energy consumption, improving the work environment, and protecting workers within the work environment. The efforts exerted by the Environmental compliance office towards raising the standards of the Egyptian industries and dealing with factories nationwide rather than being just concentrated in the greater Cairo area alone, were lauded by those present.
