Date and Time

08 December 2012 - 12:00-13:30


Cairo, Egypt - icon_popup  (See map)


Jointly organised by the Egypt and Egypt local networks.

About this event

Solid waste in Egypt can be classified into industrial solid waste (25-30 million tons/year), agricultural solid waste (20-25 million tons/year) and municipal solid waste (15-20 million tons/year). Municipal solid waste consists of hazardous and non-hazardous waste. It is a fact that solid waste composition differs from one governorate to another according to their culture and socioeconomic level. However, solving the problem in Egypt is challenging because of two factors: the low socioeconomic level of the majority of the population and their lack of awareness of the problem size. In addition to the lack of the suitable technology platform needed to face the problem.
