Engineering Square (e2) area was established in 2007 to be the first engineering and automotive industrial park in Egypt. Within its policies for improving its environmental performance and complying with the legal requirements, e2 requested Environics to carry out environmental measurements for point source emissions and wastewater as well as air dispersion modeling for the Chloride facility, one of the leading manufacturers of lead-acid automotive batteries.
The objective was to ensure compliance with Egyptian legal requirements for air emissions from industrial sources, especially lead emissions, as well as wastewater discharged into public sewer network.
Environics carried out site visits and directed the sampling and analyses of stacks air emissions and wastewater, which were conducted by the Center for Environmental Hazard Mitigation (CEHM) of Cairo University.
Based on the sampling and analyses, Environics produced a final report, which provided results of the air dispersion modeling for the main emission parameters and identified the compliance status of the facility’s air emissions and wastewater discharge according to environmental laws and regulations.
