                      1. Project Objective
     Promotion of activities to mitigate GHG emission
                and other pollution by SMIs

                         Research Themes

    1.   Analysis of production processes, energy use and pollution in
         selected industrial sectors.
    2.   Identify energy efficient and environmentally sound technologies
         and processes (E3ST).
    3.   Review existing policies and develop scenarios for sustainable
         promotion of E3ST.
    4.   Capacity mobilization and enhancement to introduce E3ST in
         selected industrial sectors.

                2. Selected Industrial Sub-sectors
    • Five industrial sub-sectors were selected across five participating countries.

           Countries                             Industrial Sub-Sectors
           China                          Textile, Foundry, Tea
           India                          Textile, Foundry, Tea, Brick
                                          Desiccated Coconut, Foundry,
                                          Brick, Ceramic
                                          Tea, Ceramic, Desiccated
           Sri Lanka
                                          Coconut, Brick and Tile
         Vietnam                   Tea, Textile, Brick, Ceramic
     Rationale for selection:
                • Energy intensive and/or highly polluting.
                • Commonality across the countries.
5               • Economic importance in the countries.
                  3. Major Research Findings
    Theme 1: Analysis of Energy use and Pollution Load

    •   Impacts are individually small, but collectively high
    •   Low energy efficiency
    •   Policies are not specific to SMI
    •   Lack of information on technologies.

    Theme 2: Identification of E3ST

    •   Lack of awareness and information on E3ST
    •   Lack of technical know-how/capacity to implement E3ST
    •   Access to loan is not easy
    •   Lack of links between E3ST developer and SMI

             3. Major Research Findings (..cont)

    Theme 3: Review, Analysis & Recommendation of Energy and
             Environmental Policies

    • No specific energy and environmental policies for SMIs.
    • Most of the environmental policies (regulations) are based on end of pipe
    • There is no market based strategy.
    • Role of financial institutions in promoting E 3ST
         - Financial intermediations.
         - Financial packages.

                          3. Project Outputs

    • Five Sector Reports (Tea, DC, Brick, Foundry, and Textile) illustrating
      production processes, energy use, pollution and E 3ST options :
      Benchmarking/References to be published: Peer Review by Sector Experts.
    • One cross country Policy Report on SMI with policy options to promote E 3STs.
    • Various Capacity Mobilization and Strengthening programs.
    • Identification of E3STs: Technology Fact Sheets (39 nos.) prepared for
    • Regular Newsletter (hardcopy & Website).
    • Publications (Journal, Conference, and other articles).
    • Road Map CD.

                3. Sector Report : Tea Sector

     Highlights of the Report
    • Basic production processes are same across the countries, but the degree of
      modernization vary.
    • Energy and environmental audits conducted show low energy efficiency
      and use of outdated technologies (Vietnam has the lowest energy
    • GHG emission results in two ways: combustion of fossil fuels, and
      electricity use.

     Impacts
    • Serves as a reference giving detailed information on tea sector.
    • Participating countries learned from each other, realized their key
      differences (in energy use and pollution) to address them.
    • E3ST suitable for tea sector were identified.

     3. Sector Report : Desiccated Coconut Sector
  Highlights of the Report
 • Focuses on two countries : Philippines and Sri Lanka.
 • Production process varies a great deal between the two countries:
          - Philippines use continuous mechanized mills.
          - Sri Lanka use mechanized, semi-mechanized and traditional.
 • Audits show drying process consumes about 66% of the total energy used.
 • CO2 is emitted mainly from combustion of fuels (fossil and biomass) to produce heat.
 • Mills using biomass have lower efficiency.
 • Another major source of pollution is the discharge of highly organic (BOD)

                        Energy and Environment.
                        •Most policies across the countries are focused
                        on high energy consuming industries, and little
                        or no consideration is given in the SMI sectors.
                        •Policy options are presented for promotion of
                        E3STs in the five countries.

          3. Capacity Mobilization and Strengthening
  Activities
 A number of capacity strengthening programs were conducted; key actors
 involved in SMIs took part. The activities include:
      • Trainings by AIT and NRIs.
      • Seminars in participating countries.
      • Workshops at AIT and NRIs.
      • Fellowships at AIT.
  • In total, 13 nos. of trainings were conducted, in which 276 participants took part
  • The trainings covered the areas such as energy and environmental audits,
    environmental management, boiler operation, effluent treatments etc.
      Impacts
     • Personal are trained in energy and environmental auditing (all NRIs).
     • Awareness on environmental management is developed at managerial level
       (India, Sri Lanka).
     • Operational level people were trained on energy efficiency and environmental
       protection (Sri Lanka).
     • Awareness developed for political leaders (Sri Lanka).
