Project Description

he objective of this Technical Cooperation (TC) project is to assist the Government of Egypt in developing a national programme to address hazardous waste issues and identifying a commercially and technically viable hazardous waste management model along with a business case for a pilot hazardous waste management project that could potentially attract funding by IFIs. In order to achieve such objectives, the existing hazardous waste management provisions in Egypt will be identified and assessed and relevant improvements recommended and potential commercial models for hazardous waste management identified. The assignment will aim to:

(a) Raise the awareness among the governorates, businesses and communities of  potential adverse environmental, health and safety impacts and risks of improper hazardous waste disposal;

(b) Increase knowledge and understanding of relevant EU Directives and Reference Documents for Best Available Techniques for Waste Treatment and Waste Incineration and international best practice for management of waste;

(c) Promote good industry practice and advanced municipal policies in managing waste by showcasing a number of examples from the EU countries and EBRD’s countries of operations;

(d) Assist in developing hazardous waste management programme and approach;

(e) Identify technically and economically viable models for hazardous waste management facilities and develop a concept of a pilot hazardous waste management project.
