The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, the German international development cooperation, has contracted Landbell Group and its partner Black Forest Solutions to develop an EPR scheme for packaging waste in Egypt.

Landbell Group and Black Forest Solutions will develop an EPR scheme for packaging waste following the best practices of European Union Member States, adapting these to local conditions in Egypt. The aim is to establish the institutional set-up for an EPR scheme for packaging waste under the draft waste framework law, with respect to the roles and responsibilities of both the public and private stakeholders, the required local infrastructure, and a roadmap for implementing the EPR scheme in a pilot area (a set tourist area along the Red Sea), as well as a plan for expanding the EPR scheme nationally.

Landbell Group will contribute its international experience operating EPR schemes for packaging, as well as WEEE and batteries, in many countries.
