Reducing the Carbon Footpring of Tanzanian Agro-processing

This UNIDO project, completed in partnership with Integrated Energy Solutions, started in early 2010 and looked at reducing the carbon footrpint of Tanzania’s agro-processing sector. Through interviews, site visits and desktop reviews, we were able to¬†calculate the carbon footprint of some of Tanzania’s most prominent agro-processing industries, analysing the energy use involved with each. We were then able to determine the most appropriate measures needed to reduce these impacts, including the introduction of renewable energy sources, energy efficiency measures and operational interventions. The project also involved training industry representatives on these opportunities and how to take advantage of the opportunities presented, including in particular carbon funding.
