Mohamed Shaker, Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy, said that a global consultant was contracted to develop a clear strategy for the production of hydrogen and ammonia, provided that the strategy ends no later than a year later.

Shaker added during his speech at the Arab Fertilizer Forum in its
session , that the country has a current tendency to expand its green hydrogen and amonia projects, explaining that work is currently underway. Li on the production of the first 44 mega watt ammonia before a conference COP 11, so that The renewable energy generated by the state is supplied free of charge to these projects, and then recovered after operation. Negotiations and negotiations with about 7 new investors, to produce amoena and hydrogen, depending on the opportunities available in the Egyptian market at present.6909
He continued that the country’s total production of renewable energies is currently close to 6909 megawatts, and it is expected to reach
Thousands of megawatts during

, provided that the production of alternative energies rise to about 2560. % of the total electrical energy connected to the grid by 6909 .

He explained that the state supports the industrial sector with

Pennies from the electricity supplied To factories in the framework of continuous support Which the government attaches to the various factories, pointing to the current development at the level of electric power production, as well as the development that took place in the electricity transmission network. Dr. Mohamed Shaker, Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy, confirmed that there is a plan that includes developing the controls of distribution companies; To raise the level of performance and improve the quality of the electrical supply, a plan was drawn up for the establishment and development of 933 A control center in the electricity distribution networks up to a year 2023 in several stages distributed geographically throughout the Republic , which will monitor the electricity distribution network and improve its performance and will be able to meet the needs of population growth in the country, in addition to the requirements of industrial development. Shaker indicated that the pilot project for installing smart meters and establishing data centers and their communication methods has been completed, within the scope of 6 distribution companies (North Cairo, South Cairo, Alexandria, Canal, South Delta, Middle Egypt). In addition, one million smart meters will be installed in the project to improve energy efficiency in distribution companies (Alexandria, North Cairo, North Delta), in cooperation with the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) within the electricity sector plan to provide electrical energy for all uses with a high degree of quality and raise the level of Services provided to citizens.

From the side of

Hisham Tawfiq, Minister of Public Business Sector, said that the Holding Company for Chemical Industries is currently conducting a number of economic studies with A number of international partners to include green ammonia in the rehabilitation and development projects in the El-Nasr, Delta and Kima factories. Inauguration of the Arab Fertilizers Forum in its session 28, that Egypt is one of the first producers of green ammonia in one Kima plant since the sixties of the last century, and it seeks to revive that industry by raising efficiency and reaching the best industrial practices in this field.
He pointed out that Egypt has become the sixth largest producer and fifth largest exporter of urea in the world, explaining that the fertilizer industry is divided into three types: nitrogen fertilizers, potassium fertilizers, and phosphate fertilizers.

He pointed out that Egypt produces nitrogen fertilizers with a capacity of 7.8 million tons per year, and phosphate fertilizers in a factory in Ain Sukhna with a capacity of Productivity of 4.3 million tons, bringing the total 11. 2 million tons.

He explained that two types of nitrogen fertilizers are produced in Egypt, namely “urea” most used in agriculture and “ammonia nitrate”, where ammonia is produced at a low concentration used in fertilizers and a higher concentration in multiple industrial uses

He added that Egypt is the sixth largest producer and fifth largest exporter of urea, as its production reached 2020 About 6.7 million urea and its domestic consumption amounted to 2.9 million tons, while its export amounted to 3.8 million tons.

He continued: The local production of ammonia nitrate amounted to 1.1 million tons per year
. , and one million tons were consumed locally, and Egypt’s exports of fertilizers represent approximately 9% of the total exports.

Dr. said. Sherif El-Gabaly, representative of the fertilizer industry in Egypt,

The meeting of Arab companies specialized in fertilizer production and shipping, pointing out Until the fertilizer industry

and we are all facing the Russian-Ukrainian crisis, it is assumed that we, as countries like Sudan and Iraq, must have expanded plans For agricultural expansion, in such crises

Sudan is considered the food basket and nothing new has happened so far despite the passage of these years

The other challenge is the high cost of production requirements and climatic changes necessitating the transition to green technology. Be during projects that limit this phenomenon simultaneously.

Arab Region

He added that we contribute 30% of the nutrients

The need for exchange With African countries in the field of fertilizers in exchange for obtaining food commodities based on the theory of exchange to raise the rates of food production in the region.

On his part, M. said. Raed Al-Soub, Secretary-General of the Union, that we

cover a third of the world’s fertilizers in return for 6% of consumption

The solution is partnership with African countries and West African countries that consume 3 million tons and the weak are planning these quotas.
We balance oxidation with food and balance with green ammonia.
