Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

Shwe Taung Cement installs a waste heat recovery power generation (WHRPG) system for their cement factory located in Mandalay, which produces 1,500 ton/day of clinker from the existing line and 4,000 ton/day from a new line. This project contributes to mitigating power shortage in Myanmar, and to the CO2 emission reduction by reducing the consumption of natural gas that is a major source of energy in the country.
This WHRPG system consists of an air quenching cooler (AQC) boiler and a latest preheater (PH) boiler which recovers waste heat and converts into power more efficiently.
All the electricity generated from the project is self-consumed at the factory.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

19,209 tCO2-eq./year

= Reference CO2 emission-Project CO2 emission

  • Reference CO2 Emission

        = Net avoided electricity [MWh/y]  x Emission Factor [tCO2/MWh]

  • Project CO2 emission  = 0 tonCO2/y
