Sidi Krir Petrochemicals Company (SIDPEC) has become the first Egyptian firm to obtain the ISO 50001 certification for industrial energy consumption management, a statement by the Egyptian Organization for Standardization and Quality (ESO).
The company’s success in obtaining the certificate was the byproduct of technical support SIDPEC received from a local project aiming at enhancing the industrial use of energy, said ESO chairman, Hassan Abdel Meguid.
SIDPEC’s CEO Ahmed Helmy said his company’s application of the energy management system helped, with low cost and simple measures, in saving ten percent of the energy consumed in production.
SIDPEC is an Egyptian ethylene producer and a main provider of the substance to the Egyptian Petrochemicals Company.
