  • Technology Roadmap: Low-Carbon Technology for the Indian Cement Industry

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 1, 2013
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This roadmap outlines a possible transition path for the Indian cement industry to support the global goal of halving carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 2050. It estimates that the Indian cement industry would reduce its direct CO2 emissions intensity to 0.35tCO2/t cement in 2050, about 45 per cent lower than current levels. Despite this, the total emissions would grow from the current 137 MtCO2 to between 275 MtCO2 and 468 MtCO2 in 2050 due to rapid growth in cement demand and economic growth in India. The vision is ambitious but realistic.

  • Energy Transition for Industry: India and the Global Context

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, January 1, 2011
    Objective: 

    A truly global and integrated energy technology revolution is essential to address the intertwined challenges of energy security and climate change while also meeting the growing energy needs of the developing world. For India to play its part in realising the global goals of the BLUE scenario, it will need to achieve rapid economic development over the next 40 years with only a very small increase in CO2 emissions. Currently there is no precedent for such a low_CO2 development path.

  • Climate Change Mitigation in India

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 1, 2013
    Objective: 

    This report focused on the efforts taken up by the Government of India towards climate change mitigation and how the environmental concerns have been integrated in Indian planning process. The main objective is to bring together expertise, knowledge and local experiences in a common network that empowers communities across the globe to create, share, use and store knowledge to support sustainable living.

  • A single-step process for the preparation of highly pure alkyl esters used in making lactic acid poly lactic acid

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective: 

    Background: Highly pure alkyl esters especially methyl lactate have a very important and wide range of applications at an industrial level. The products formed in conventional processes are impure with residues of sodium sulphate and are corrosive; separation processes are expensive and energy intensive. In most of the processes alkali metal is wasted in its sulfate form- cannot be recycled. Technology Description: NCL’s process uses alkali metal carboxylate salts to convert to its respective pure alkyl esters by a single direct esterification step.

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 3, 2013
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This Trainer"s Manual aims to support trainers in conducting effective training programmes on climate change adaptation for Indian SMEs. The manual presents the aims, methodology and content of the training programme on climate change adaptation awareness raising and strategy development. It also gives guidance for trainers on how to implement the training programme with groups of SMEs.

  • Umweltfreundlichen Klimaanlagen in Indien

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, February 19, 2012
    Objective: 

    Sie kühlen Räume, heizen aber die Atmosphäre auf: Die meisten Klimaanlagen weltweit nutzen Kältemittel mit hohem Treibhauspotenzial. Doch das geht auch anders. Der indische Hersteller Godrej nutzt statt klimaschädlicher Fluorchlorkohlenwasserstoffe klimafreundliches Propan. Kaum Treibhauspotenzial, kein Schaden für die Ozonschicht - bei einem Markt von etwa vier Millionen Klimaanlagen in Indien pro Jahr fällt das durchaus ins Gewicht.

    Publication date: 
    Monday, October 1, 2012

    The Institute for Industrial Productivity designed and carried out a project to establish a more transparent and efficient market for energy efficiency projects in India. This report summarizes their findings after a policy review, interviews with industry experts, and the assembly of bank and country working teams. The report aims to identify barriers to industrial energy efficiency project financing and offer suggestions for new initiatives.

  • Integrated Energy Policy: Report of the Expert Committee

    Integrated Energy Policy: Report of the Expert Committee

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, August 1, 2006

    This report presents the Government of India's 2006 proposed integrated energy policy and sustainable development plan that covers all sources of energy and addresses all aspects of energy use and supply including energy security, access and availability, and affordability and pricing, as well as efficiency and environmental concerns. The report expresses India's interest in turning away from traditional fuels and turning instead to newer, less polluting fuels that have less of a negative effect on human health in India.

  • Approach to Energy Efficiency Among Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises in India: Results of a Field Survey

    Approach to Energy Efficiency Among Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises in India: Results of a Field Survey

    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, December 1, 2011

    This study addresses energy practices among small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in India. In particular, the study examines the assumption that SMEs often forsake environmental responsibility in favor of "business survival." The study details energy management practices of SMEs in India as well as drivers and barriers that have contributed to the adoption (or lack thereof) of energy efficient processes.
