Misr Cement Group
Misr Cement Group and all its business units are committed to operating their facilities while adhering to sustainable practices that ensure the least amount of harm to the environment. Part of the group’s environmental responsibility is to actively work to safeguard and replenish the environment in Upper Egypt where its facilities are located.
More than 70,000 trees have been planted by the group, with the aim of reducing CO2 in the atmosphere, and providing a home to local and migrating birds.
Cement waste is safely discarded of in a sanitary land fill where waste is isolated from the environment until it is safe (completely degraded biologically, chemically, and physically), known as by-pass dust.
Air is filtered by placing antistatic filers next to dust sources at a height of 130 m. Fine dust emissions are recaptured and recovered in large quantities and recycled as a raw material.
Water waste is prevented by using a closed-circuit industrial cooling process for the water.
Waste-water is treated and used to irrigate the trees within the grounds of the facilities, with a daily volume of 150 cubic meters.
