The New Amendments to the Implementing Regulations of the Law on Environment: Huge Expansion in the Use of Coal, and Serious Health and Environmental Toll
The Implementing Regulations of the law on Environment has been recently amended by the Prime Minister's Decree no. 964/ 2015, which was published in the official gazette on 19 April 2015. The amended Regulations included the standards and conditions on the use of coal. This amendment has been expected since the decision made by the Council of Ministers, in April 2014, concerning the use of coal as part of the energy mix in Egypt.
