Amut Ecotech was awarded the public tender issued by UNDP Solid Waste Management in Minya Project in 2016.
The project is financed by the Italian Egyptian Debt for Development Swap Program based on a commercial agreement between the Italian and Egyptian Republics. The plant represents a pilot scheme that will be then replicated in other rural governorate aiming at upgrading the overall management of the municipal wastes across the country.
The plant has been designed with the following outcomes: reducing quantities and volumes of waste to send to landfill, maximizing quantity and quality of recyclable materials, getting best quality of final RDF product in terms of calorific value and achieving a great ratio between plant production and investment costs.
The facility is designed to segregate 300 ton/day of municipal wastes based on their type. The dry wastes will be processed for extracting recyclable materials ready for sale and RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) useful for use as source of fuel in cement factories whilst the organic waste will be biologically treated to produce compost intended to safe agricultural applications.
