China - Baotou Iron and Steel Industrial Energy Efficiency CDM Project : safeguards diagnostic review (Inglês)

The development objective of the project is to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions by assisting the project owner, Baotou Iron and Steel Group Company (BISCO) in financing investments to improve energy efficiency, through the use of the clean development mechanism (CDM) sanctioned under the Kyoto Protocol. This Environmental due diligence has been carried out to confirm compliance with relevant Chinese environmental laws and regulations. It was conducted in three steps: (a) review of the environmental process related to the adoption of the coke dry quenching (CDQ) and dry-type TRT technologies; (b) review of the Baotou Iron and Steel Group Company (BISCO)'s past environmental and operational practices; and (c) review of BISCO's environmental management (including a meeting with local environmental officials). There are no special Chinese EA requirements for the conversion of the TRT dust collection system from the wet type to the dry type. No other environmental licenses, permits etc. are required, and there were no specific environmental emission standards for TRT operation. Although there are no specific Chinese standards, dust emission levels currently experienced with the dry systems are extremely low. Corrective measures have been defined to address the issues identified during the due diligence. Finally, the project will not induce any land acquisition or relocation of population and would improve the workers' well beings because of the expected dramatic reduction in emissions of particulates, SO2 and NOx
