Egypt PM Follows Up on Soda Ash Project in New El Alamein

Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly held a meeting on July 30 to discuss the new soda ash production complex planned for the industrial zone in New Alamein City.

The plant will have an annual capacity of about 600,000 metric tons of soda ash, also known as sodium carbonate, to supply the domestic market and export abroad, Petroleum Minister Tarek El-Molla said at the meeting.

The facility will help maximize the value of Egypt’s mineral resources and support the expansion of related industries like glass and detergents, El-Molla said.

The project will produce both light and dense soda ash, along with sodium bicarbonate, sodium percarbonate, and other byproducts, using limestone, coal, salt, and ammonia as feedstock, the minister added.

Shaher Reda, CEO of state-owned Egyptian Soda Ash Company, said the site was selected after comparing options across several governorates, adding that the location will be linked to railway and electric transportation networks.

The meeting was held at the New Alamein City government headquarters and attended by the central bank governor, trade minister, and other officials.
