President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi inaugurated Monday two gas production factories and a tri-generation plant in Abu Rawash district of Giza.
Attending the inauguration ceremony were Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouli, Defense Minister Mohamed Zaki and some ministers and senior state officials.
A documentary, “New Hope”, was played during the inauguration ceremony to shed light on the quantum leap achieved where new industrial projects are concerned.
It cited an Egyptian industrial complex that now includes dozens of production facilities, atop of which the El Nasr Company for Intermediate Chemicals (NCIC), which secures agricultural, industrial and medical demands in the areas of Abu Rawash, Fayyoum and Ain Sokhna.
The number of factories has increased to 39 over the past eight years, according to the documentary.
More than 6,000 jobs have been created at the factories, whose products have so far been exported to 55 Arab and foreign countries.
In 2019, a medical and industrial gases factory no. 3 was inaugurated with the aim to produce Liquid Medical Oxygen (LMO).
Two new plants have also been established to produce oxygen, nitrogen and argon with a daily capacity of 200 tons; thus bringing the total production of LMO to 340 tons every day, and the total annual production of liquid argon and nitrogen to 1,000 tons and 43,000 tons respectively.
This helped meet the needs of more than 280 hospitals, according to the documentary.
