Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek el-Molla explained that the project, whose cost is estimated at €210 million,
is also one of the effective solutions implemented by the Ministry of Petroleum to support the state's efforts to transform rice straw from an environmental challenge
into an opportunity for economic exploitation and an added value.
Sustainability Wotech turns agricultural waste into medium density fiberboard (MDF),
a building material used in cabinetry, furniture, molding and more
Each year, rice yields 1.5 million tons of rice straw, a byproduct of harvested rice that must be removed to make way for the next season’s crop.
Traditionally, farmers burned their fields to dispose of the straw and make way for the next growing season.
“The project is one of the most important projects that the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources
aims to implement within its plan to expand the petrochemical industry, which aims to establish new projects that contribute to providing raw materials
and major production inputs for many industries on the local market”
