CAIRO: Minister of Administrative and Local Development Adel Labib said Sunday that the European experience with generating energy from garbage would be applied in Egypt after receiving numerous offers from companies to execute this project.
Biogenic materials in garbage produce methane when they are burned in specific facilities. This methane can be captured and used as a fuel to generate electricity.
Minister of Environment Laila Iskander added that the project will start using garbage collected from residents in the districts of Agouza and Dokki in Giza.
