Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

By utilizing agricultural biomass in Lao PDR as an alternative fuel to cement manufacturing process, a large CO2 emission reductions can be achieved, as well as saving coal resources.
 The proposed process using Japanese technology is shown below.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

21,281 t-CO2/year
Expected emission reduction from proposed project
 Condition ; utilizing 2t/h x 24hr/day x 300days/y = 14,400t rice husk/y
 Expected CO2 emission reduction 21,281t/CO2/y
National potential
 Rice husk production from whole Lao PDR 614,000t/y
 Expected CO2 emission reduction potential 921,000t-CO2/y
