Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

This study is aimed at reducing energy-related treatment water and waste water as well as contributing to water saving and environmental improvement by installing super-water-saving toilets (11,200 toilet units) developed by LIXIL Corporation into the low-cost housing project (5,600 house units) of the National Housing Corporation (NHC) in Kenya.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

33.1 tCO2/year
Reference Emission: 36.792 tCO2/Year
 Water required for standard flush toilet (10 liter /time)
 x Emission Factor related to Water Use (0.36 [gCO2/m3], MoE)
Project Emission: 3.679tCO2/Year
 Water required for micro flush toilet (1 liter /time)
 Assumption: 5 flushes/day
