It will treat some 1000 tons of waste per day.

Egypt's Minister of Environment, Yasmine Fouad, has announced the opening of the country's very first refuse-derived fuel factory, as reported by Youm7. 

Set to be officially inaugurated on April 18th, the factory is to treat up to one thousand tons of waste - including solid waste, industrial waste, or commercial waste- on a daily basis.

The factory comes as a part of Egypt’s steady move away from reliance on coal for energy and builds on the January opening of Qalyubia's first waste-recycling plant, which can turn up to 4,000 tons of waste per day into clean energy, as well as a recent agreement signed between Egypt and Korean solid waste conversion technology, JST, to build waste-recycling plants. 

It’s estimated that Egypt produces around 55,000 tons of solid and organic waste per day.
