Environmen Ministry inspect coal-run factories

Environment Minister Khaled Fahmy said the ministry has conducted inspection campaigns for a number of ports over the past few days to monitor the application of environmental regulations by factories that use coal.

The environmental regulations were published in the official state gazette on April 19.

Amendments were introduced to the environmental law to toughen sanctions on violators of coal users in coordination with the Justice Ministry, said Fahmy.
