4 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 (E 3 ST). 3.Review existing policies and develop scenarios for sustainable promotion of E 3 ST. 4.Capacity mobilization and enhancement to introduce E 3 ST in selected industrial sectors. 1.Project Objective Promotion of activities to mitigate GHG emission and other pollution by SMIs
5 2. Selected Industrial Sub-sectors CountriesIndustrial Sub-Sectors ChinaTextile, Foundry, Tea IndiaTextile, Foundry, Tea, Brick Philippines Desiccated Coconut, Foundry, Brick, Ceramic Sri Lanka Tea, Ceramic, Desiccated Coconut, Brick and Tile VietnamTea, Textile, Brick, Ceramic Five industrial sub-sectors were selected across five participating countries. Rationale for selection: Energy intensive and/or highly polluting. Commonality across the countries. Economic importance in the countries.
6 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 E 3 ST Lack of awareness and information on E 3 ST Lack of technical know-how/capacity to implement E 3 ST Access to loan is not easy Lack of links between E 3 ST developer and SMI
7 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 treatment. There is no market based strategy. Role of financial institutions in promoting E 3 ST - Financial intermediations. - Financial packages.
8 3. Project Outputs Five Sector Reports (Tea, DC, Brick, Foundry, and Textile) illustrating production processes, energy use, pollution and E 3 ST options : Benchmarking/References to be published: Peer Review by Sector Experts. One cross country Policy Report on SMI with policy options to promote E 3 STs. Various Capacity Mobilization and Strengthening programs. Identification of E 3 STs: Technology Fact Sheets (39 nos.) prepared for dissemination. Regular Newsletter (hardcopy & Website). Publications (Journal, Conference, and other articles). Road Map CD.
9 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 efficiency). 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. E 3 ST suitable for tea sector were identified.

11 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. CO 2 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) wastewater.

13 Report on Policy Highlights A cross country comparison of national policies on economy, energy and environment: SMI- 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 E 3 STs in the five countries.
14 3. Capacity Mobilization and Strengthening 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). 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.
