Host Country: BangladeshJCM Model Project

Installation of High Efficiency Loom at Weaving Factory

PP (Japan): Toyota Tsusho Corporation / PP (Bangladesh): Hamid Fabrics Limited

Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

The textile industry is a key industry in Bangladesh, accounting for more than 80% of the total exports. This project introduces air jet looms at a weaving factory, which can reduce energy consumption and increase productivity at the same time.
Currently, rapier looms are widely used in Bangladesh and many of them are secondhand. Compared to the rapier looms, air jet looms introduced in this project have 1.8 times higher productivity and 15% higher energy efficiency, which means approximately 53% energy efficient in terms of unit per area of fabric produced.
The air jet looms are environmentally sound not causing problems such as noise and waste water treatment.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

1,518 tCO2/ year

Assuming the same quantity of fabrics are produced for a year by the rapier looms, it is estimated that 4,299MWh is consumed and the energy saving with air jet looms would be 2.265MWh. Therefore, GHG emission reduction is: 2,265MWh x 0.67CO2/MWh = 1,518 tCO2.
*EFgrid: 0.670 tCO2/MWh (publicly available, latest number from IGES)
