The crosscutting nature of the industry sector means its activities and outputs impact all parts of society. As a result, industry can play a vital role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions throughout the product lifecycle, starting at the point of raw material extraction, right through production, usage and end-of-life waste recovery. Many opportunities exist in the provision of services through sustainable procurement, supply chain and logistics that minimise transport and emissions, and application of climate change technology on production plant and manufacturing processes. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.
Feasibility study for Carbon Mineralization by using CO2 issued from coal power plant for recycling ash slag in Cao Ngan coal power plantType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:
Currently, there exist 20 coal-fired power plants in operation with a total capacity of nearly 14,500 MW, which generate about 15.7 million tons of coal slag per year, of which coal ash accounts for 75%. It is predicted that by the year 2020, there will be 43 factories, which will generate more than 30 million tons of coal slag per year. At present, there are no suitable solutions for this huge amount of slag.

- Nationally Determined Contribution to expand electric power generation from geothermal and limit its net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2030 to 145 Mt CO2e or lower. This would constitute a 255 MtCO2e reduction from the projected ‘business-asusual’ (BAU) emissions in 2030 or a 64% reduction from the BAU scenario in 2030.

Kenya is in a very interesting development phase, with its ambitions outlined in the vision 2030. Energy is one of the key enablers of the Vision 2030 and energy security remains a matter of national priority. The Kenya Vision 2030 envisions a middle-income economy offering decent jobs and high quality of life to its citizenry. This portends increased energy demand and consumption due to rapidly expanding, wholly energy driven manufacturing, agriculture, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and transport sectors.
