Key points from this Fact File

  • Recycling is the leading project type, accounting for US$230 million or 40% of the total. This is followed by incineration (with energy recovery), accounting for US$141 million or 25% of the total.
  • The total estimated capacity of these projects in 1.7 million tonnes. This is equal to 194,065 tonnes per project on average and 8% of Egypt’s annual waste generation.
  • Waste investments totalling US$371 million are expected to become operational over the next few years. This is currently expected to peak in 2020 at US$230 million.
