Tawazon, Qalaa Holdings’ subsidiary company for investment in the regional solid waste management industry, controls two companies: the Egyptian Company for Solid Waste Recycling (ECARU), a solid waste management service operator, and the Engineering Tasks Group (ENTAG), a solid waste management engineering and contracting company. Together, these two companies form a leading waste management enterprise with extensive operations in Egypt and an international project book in Oman, Malaysia, Sudan, Nigeria, Libya, Saudi Arabia and Syria.

The companies are active in the following areas: 

Agricultural Solid Waste Management: ECARU collects and processes agricultural waste in Egypt.

Municipal Solid Waste Management: An ECARU subsidiary is active in municipal solid waste management in the south of Cairo, where it is contracted to receive, sort, treat and landfill waste annually. 

Solid Waste Engineering & Contracting: ENTAG has thus far built more than 75 sorting and composting facilities in Egypt and also runs projects in Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Libya, Sudan, Oman and Syria. The company acts as a “door opener” for ECARU.

Qalaa Holdings is working closely with management to help boost human and financial resources to be better able to capitalize on existing opportunities as well as develop and explore others, both on a local and regional scale. Our short to medium focus is on providing biomass and RDF as alternative fuels to heavy energy consumers such as cement factories as well as the export of waste to be used for residential and industrial heating purposes through densification projects.
