CAIRO – 16 February 2022: The presidential developmental initiative “Haya Karima” has launched one of the important projects in Egypt’s countryside, specifically in Gharbiya governorate, which is the Bio Gas project to produce natural gas and fertilizers for farmers and livestock farms.


The project was launched in village of Sunbat, in Zefta city in Gharbia governorate; one of the villages that are developed under the umbrella of Haya Karima.


Tawfiq Attia, one of the initiative officials in the village, said that the village is one of the largest villages where Haya Karma Initiative is being implemented.




He added, that the "Biogas project" is in cooperation between the Good Life Foundation, the International Cooperation Fund, and the Renewable Energy Foundation, explaining that the main goal of the project is to make optimal use of livestock waste, and to produce natural gas and organic fertilizer from them, and nearly 20 units have been implemented in Sunbat village so far.


Doaa Salama, the engineer responsible for the project said that the Bio Gas project is one of the vital energy projects that are currently being implemented within the Gharbia Governorate. She explained that the project consists of four phases, starting with the entry basin, where livestock waste is dumped, then mixed with water, then the anaerobic fermentation takes place in the large dome, after that the gas comes out from the exit pipe that is installed, and then the process of leaving the organic fertilizer in a basin designated for its storage takes place.


She explained that the organic fertilizer that is taken out helps the farmer in the cultivation process after that, and dispenses with the use of chemicals in agriculture, noting that this project provides approximately three gas cylinders per month and fertilizes nearly three acres of agricultural land.
