The CD contains:
4. Achievements/Impacts of the SMI Project
Establishment of specific energy consumption and pollution loads of selected industrial sub sectors.
Data/Information on energy-environmental issues related to SMIs of the studied sectors.
Options for improvement of SMIs’ energy-environmental status: E3STs, policy options.
Increased awareness of related actors/beneficiaries about energy-environmental issues in SMIs.
Capacity of NRIs and national partners strengthened : research and technical capacity.
Capacity of SMIs strengthened : energy-environmental Audit / management skills.
Networking established: cooperation and information exchange among partners in each country and among participating countries.
Developing a technology for environmentally friendly coconut shell carbonization (Sri Lanka).
Developing a low cost treatment technique for coconut waste water (Sri Lanka).
Acquisition of measuring and monitoring equipment (for emission and ambient air quality).
4. Achievements/Impacts of the SMI Project
Improved recognition by State, Private sector and international development agencies (ADB funded Cleaner Production and USAID funded ESCO development projects) as a major player in energy and environmental matters.
Creation of wider business interests focused on the field on energy and environment.
SL:Participating in national steering committees on CP and CDM.
SL: Entrusting the task of writing the chapter on “Environmentally Sound Technology Transfer for Sustainable Development” for the national report for Rio+10 world summit.
NRI (Sri Lanka) is selected as a partner organization under State of Arizona (USA) Environmental Partnership Programme under USAEP.
Off-shoot project in Vietnam: improvement of withering trough in tea processing.
Offshoot of this project in India: PSG (Indian NRIs) has started a masters and PhD programme in energy engineering and its energy audit team has got Government approval to carry out energy audit and certify the SMIs.
PSG (Indian NRI) has established contacts with Centre for Environmental Education, which is collaborating with UNIDO in Tirupur and USAID project on “Reduction of GHG Potential of Knitwear Industry at Tirupur” coordinated by Ecosmart India.
