Biomass pellets production facility
Opportunity Description: This opportunity also takes advantage of local waste streams, mainly sugarcane bagasse, corn stalk, as well as wood cuttings and sawdust, palm tree fronds and banana tree leaves. The end-product is high-calorific value biomass pellets that can be burned on-site at energy intensive factories such as cement plants.
The potential lies in serving local energy-intensive industries, which have already started preparing their factories to receive alternative fuels, such as the cement plants in Qena and Assiut.
