It is worth mentioning that acknowledging the importance of our presence in Alexandria and Wadi el Kamar, we have assigned the implementation of an environmental and social impact assessment to an independent third party, along with requesting a permit for the use of coal and thus, we have launched an open and organized dialogue with local stakeholders in the area, that helps to improve mutual understanding and collaboration...In addition, Ministry of Environment formed a committee consisting of members of the Higher Institute of Health, experts from the University of Cairo and non-governmental organizations from Wadi Al Kamar to investigate if there is any direct relation between the plant’s operations and any health problems in Wadi el Kamar. The committee proved that all the recorded health cases are within the average range of the country, hence the plant has no extra impact on the health of people and therefore the plant got the license for continuing its operations.
