|Main Implementing Entity||Tepia Corporation Japan Co., Ltd.|
|FS Partner(s)||Shaanxi Industrial Technology Research Institute CDM Program Center|
|Location of Project Activity||China (Shaanxi Province)|
|Category of Project Activity||Others (Waste Gas Utilisation)|
|Duration of Project Activity/ Crediting Period||2010-2026 / 2012-2021 (10 years)|
|Summary of FS Report||PDF (348KB)|
|Description of Project Activity||The project is implemented at Shaanxi Dongling Smelting Co., Ltd. of lead and zinc production in Shaanxi province, China. It aims to recover waste energy from 4 sources for generating electricity with 20MW capacity of electricity generating system. As implementing the project, 135,390MWh/a of electricity is sent to the North-West Power Grid (NWPG), then 112,910tCO2/year of GHG will be reduced.|
|Methodology to be applied||ACM0012|
|Baseline Scenario||According to ACM0012, the baseline scenario is determined as the case where the 4 kinds of waste energy are flared or released to the atmosphere and the comparable amount of electricity is supplied from the grid connected electricity generating facilities.|
|Demonstration of Additionality||Without consideration of the CER revenue, the project IRR will not reach the benchmark, on the other hands it will be above the benchmark with the revenue; therefore it can be conclude that the implementation of the project is additional.|
|Estimation of GHG Emission Reductions||112,910tCO2 per annual|
|Monitoring Plan||The monitoring plan is carried out in accordance with ACM0012. The main monitoring items are; electricity generation, electricity sent to NWPG and waste energy recovered. The accumulated data is recorded by month and the monitoring meters are calibrated per annual by the project owner.|
|Environmental Impact Analysis||
- Impact on atmosphere:
There will be little negative impact on atmosphere since no additional fossil fuel is charged.
- Impact of water:
The impact of water environment can be considered very small since there will be a very little amount of waste water for implementing the project; the waste water is treated to meet the Chinese national standard.
- Impact of solid wastes:
The impact of solid wastes (dust and daily waste) can be considered very small since those wastes are treated to meet the Chinese national standard.
- Impact of noise:
There will be little negative impact of noise since the project owner installs low-level-noise equipments and silencers; therefore the noise level from the project site will meet the Chinese national standard.
|Project Feasibility||Testing operation has already started from Dec, 2010 with recovering 3 kinds of waste energy (COG, BFG and WFF). It is supposed to start the official operation from Jan, 2012 after installing all equipments by 2011.|
|"Co-benefits" (i.e. Improvement of Local Environmental Problems)||Owing to the implementation of the project, part of the electricity would be substituted which is generated at the other electricity generating facilities almost dominated with coal-fuelled; therefore 327.49 tones of SO2 would be reduced annually then contribute to improving the quality of local atmosphere.|
|Contribution to Sustainable Development in Host Country||In China, great part of electricity is generated with coal-fired electricity generating system; the rate is quite higher than other country. Then the project aims to reduce the coal consumption substituting waste energy for coal.|
Moreover the project will vitalize the local economy creating job opportunities; thus the project would contribute to the sustainable development in China.
