Project Description

According to bank disclosure information, to achieve the objective, the Project will provide the following support in two key areas:

  1. support in strengthening of the enabling environment and knowledge at the sector level by developing a toolkit to assist investors and project developers in assessing the feasibility of AFR projects, and providing inputs on AFR as part of a broader waste management framework through Public-Private Dialogue (PPD), including inputs on business models and contractual mechanisms. This work will help reduce risks for clients supported by IFC directly and the market as a whole;
  2. providing advice to firms, with a focus on strengthening the AFR supply chain and support in structuring AFR business models that involve AFR producers, cement companies and AFR technology providers.

The Project is expected to help reduce the operating costs of cement companies, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and divert waste from landfills by catalyzing the uptake of alternative fuels and raw materials (AFR) in the cement sector in Egypt.
