A petrochemical factory in cairo , produsces more than 40 thousand tons of greenhouse gases

During 2008, almost two years ago, announced the signing of contracts for the plant investment particularly in the area Mostorod eastern neighborhood of Shubra al-Khaymah, to oil refineries to produce diesel fuel, was later rejected by a popular residential areas surrounding saturated for the company because of the dangers of pollutants the new add on Persistent current of the current oil companies.

And got the people of the Mostorod documents have been delivered "to the original constitution," confirming the environmental damage autosomal resulting from the establishment of a petrochemical plant, revealed a study assessing the environmental impact of the Egyptian Company for Oil Refining issued by the Institute studies and environmental research that show the magnitude of the misstatements that I mentioned a study of the Centre for Environmental Research at the University of Cairo on the project, which reduce the severity of the adverse effects of the plant.

And the study shows the environmental impact of Ain Shams University, the project to be established away from Cairo, about 14 km until the field threshold other than to a study the University of Cairo, which made it clear that far from the center of Cairo, about 40 kilometers, and the study was based Ain Shams to a map of east Cairo issued for the Egyptian General Authority of the space.

And the reality of Cairo tourist map of the factory away from a hospital, a distance of Teaching rain 3.72 km and the hospital admitted Bahtem around 3. Km and the General Hospital Bahtem 3.5 kg m.

Besides the proximity to the areas already saturated population in Cairo Bikl away a few Viltsq factory Bonstp construction represented by housing stuck in the wall of the company and schools adjacent to the site of the company hit the number of pupils out and describes the study to the 9734 pupils, in addition to a neighboring project for slum areas in particular, and resides about 1.2 million people.


Which it views as Dr. Nadia Taieb, head of air pollution, the former National Center for Research as dangerous to human health in the case of emissions of hydrocarbons and which is one of the hazardous materials and toxic lead to infection by many diseases, including diseases of the kidneys and liver, which requires the company to establish a closed system for refining.


And the Prime Minister also sent a letter to the Ministry of State for Environmental Affairs to prepare a detailed report on the damage to the establishment of a petrochemical plant continued the Egyptian Company for Oil Refining, and explained the honor in talks with some Alamla that Oil Minister Abdullah Raven assured him that the project will come with investments amounting to 3 billion pounds and 10 thousand jobs, without mention of the health damage.


Which is contrary to a study, Ain Shams University, the project will provide just 600 permanent jobs with investments of up to one billion dollars, stressing that in light of concern for the National Investment must be preserved, in turn, on human resources and millions of residents and neighbors of the plant.

Due to the high concentrations of organic compounds Colleges and volatile for the permissible limits in the universal laws according to the measurements of the Cizn the environment as little study before you run the new company, which requires finding ways to address these emissions for the rehabilitation of the region of environmentally so as not to increase pregnancy organic gas in the region after the operation of the plant.


 

 As for the water resources affected by the remnants of the project according to a study of environmental impact that the company would pull an estimated 155 thousand cubic meters of water Emia of Ismailia Canal, which would inevitably affect the water level to the study and also exacerbated in the winter, that water Pavdhavp cooling, which will return to Eltorea again will affect the organisms in the canal, which is the source of drinking water for many of the stations on the canal to Ismailia in some provinces, including Giza.

 And will not be limited to environmental impacts on human beings as to the study, but include plants where sticks to the project agricultural land is estimated at about 282 acres southeast of the company, and agricultural land already saturated with the plant represents a large part of agricultural production for the particular and Mostorod consumed by Cairo, have been monitored rice cultivation East company to be created and that the reality of a field visit carried out by the scientific team to study.

 But according to estimates of the scientific study of the environmental impact the rate of some greenhouse gases to 40 thousand tons, such as carbon dioxide, while up emissions of carbon monoxide, which is a poisonous gas to 28 tons and 33 tons of oxides of carbon, which is one of the gas acid rain.

And next to the scientific study of the detailed environmental damage resulting from the establishment of the factory was among the documents A copy of the utilization fees between Misr Petroleum Company and the Egyptian Company for Refining confirms that the latter will pay 106 pounds per square meter of the land of the project after receiving the land, an amount less than the price meter current of the earth that up to two thousand pounds, which make some people are raising a communication to the Attorney General number 4236 because of suspicion of corruption in the sales contract.


And with the approaching implementation of the project the people of the region Mostorod and in particular the areas most affected from the factory to form a popular campaign against the construction of a plant Mostorod, and has given a copy of these documents to the Prime Minister, Dr. Essam Sharaf as little Mohammed Abdullah, coordinator of the campaign and to demand the abolition of the project and a move away from the area of ​​Shubra Al Khaimah to the area is populated. The study recommended the EIA for the project for a total of points that should be taken into account during the implementation of the project starts the need to work to transform the use of diesel fuel to natural gas in the study area (Mostorod / Bahtem / particular), and this requires a plan in coordination with the EEAA, where you need to shift from the use of fuel oil to natural gas, with an emphasis on the need to recover carbon dioxide from various combustion processes. And is known Kmatudh study of drinking water plants are not designed to handle organic materials, but you only remove the turbidity and then kill bacteria with chlorine, next to water pollution with organic matter and which may seep into the water canal leading to the increase in the concentration of chlorinated organic after chlorination, which could lead health problems.
