On August 22, 2017 the National Solid Waste Management Programme organized a workshop to discuss the RDF supply and demand, market development and challenges facing this emerging market in Egypt. The workshop was attended by 14 companies that work on producing RDF.
The workshop is part of a series of workshops held by the programme for better understanding of the market and building a bridge between different stakeholders.
The NSWMP was launched by the Government of Egypt with the support of EU/German development partners for a sustainable development of the Solid Waste Management (SWM) sector in Egypt. The NSWMP is being implemented jointly by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the KfW Development Bank in cooperation with the European Commission and the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO).
