Angel Yeast promotes green development in Egypt




Angel Yeast recently hosted a community Welfare Activity on sustainable and green development and presented gifts to students at a school near its factory in Egypt.


The event was joined by Dr. Ayman Al-Kashef, undersecretary of Egypt's Ministry of Education for Community Participation in Beni Sueif, as well as community event coordinator Hanan Gerges,  Angel Yeast representative Li Xiaokun, factory general manager Ahmed Bashir and director of administration and sales manager of Angel Yeast (Egypt) Co., Ltd. Ahmed Azzazy.


"For Angel Yeast, the event was an opportunity to promote green and sustainable development, support students to engage more in the community and educate the young generation on the importance of protecting the environment," Xiaokun said. "We hope to further promote sustainable development through events like this, to engage more people to take action and build a better, green home for all."


According to local media Elmaushir, Angel Yeast (Egypt) Co., Ltd. provides all types of humanitarian assistance and is keen on social participation in a way that connects the company with the local community.


Angel Yeast (Egypt) Co., Ltd. has created a significant number of employment opportunities, and as of now, it employs more than 900 local staff, including 56 supervisors and 14 senior executives, the company said.


Upon the completion of a yeast product expansion project, which will boast 20,000 tonnes of annual production capacity, Angel Yeast will employ up to 1,000 more local employees.


The company has actively established a circular economy model to advance the development of the local agricultural ecosystem and continually promotes environmental governance, emission reduction and clean production following an environment-first strategy, Angel Yeast added.


Angel Yeast is leveraging Egypt's abundant molasses to enhance sustainable production. By converting molasses byproducts into valuable resources, the company is exemplifying the principles of a green circular economy. The wastewater generated during the yeast manufacturing process undergoes treatment to become organic fertiliser, which is then sold to bolster the local agricultural sector.


Angel Yeast has also developed a robust institutional framework and implemented a variety of mechanisms that align with the ISO14001 environmental management system. The company's proactive governance includes the "Environmental Protection Concern Management System," which monitors, reports and addresses potential environmental issues. This system facilitates prompt investigation and resolution of concerns, guaranteeing that operations remain compliant with legal standards and committed to environmental integrity.


With compliance as the red line and technological advancement as the core, Angel Yeast (Egypt) Co., Ltd. has been operating environmental protection facilities smoothly, including those involved in waste treatment and noise control. Furthermore, all pollutant emission indexes are in line with requirements.


Angel Yeast has also implemented yeast fermentation tail gas and environmental tail gas control projects to strengthen odor control.
