Workshop on QA/QC procedure and MRV Plan of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) in the Cement Industry Featured

[WA3, 14/11] Supporting the development of NAMA in the cement sector which is currently focusing on utilization of waste as alternative fuel in the cement industry as the mitigation measure in the NAMA; a procedure to conduct MRV (MRV Plan) shall be set up, in which the quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) procedures should be included in the plan as well. On 10th-12th November 2014, a Forum Group Discussion in the frame of Voluntary Partnership Agreement with the cement industries was conducted at Hotel Royal Amaroossa Royal Bogor, organized by the Ministry of Industry in cooperation with GIZ PAKLIM working area industry. The 3-days workshop focused on the discussion of Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) procedure and MRV Plan of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) in the cement industry. This workshop was actively participated by 35 participants from PAKLIM’s partners from the Ministry of Industry, Ministry of Environment, Indonesia Cement Association (ASI), as well as representatives from cement industries including from PT Holcim Indonesia, PT Indocement Tunggal Prakarsa Tbk, PT Semen Indonesia, PT Semen Tonasa, PT Semen Padang, PT Semen Baturaja, and PT Semen Kupang. Opening remarks were delivered by Mrs Lilih Handayaningrum on behalf of Head of Centre for Green Industry and Environmental Assessment, Ministry of Industry, and Dr Markus Francke as Team Leader for GIZ PAKLIM working area industry. The aim of this workshop was to increase the awareness and understanding on the QA/QC procedure and thus, could contribute to the development of MRV Plan for the Cement industries’ NAMA. The first day of the workshop focused on QA/QC procedure in cement industry including examples from QA/QC implementation and QA/QC Format, supported by GIZ international expert, Mr Martin Burian. He elaborated the overview of MRV from international context, and also the proposed key parameters subject to QC. Among the agreed parameters are specific clinker emission, CCR clinker to cement ration, specific heat consumption, and specific electricity consumption.  Exercise in calculating the parameters using company data from the participants were held afterwards as simulation. On the next days, the workshop focused on MRV implementation plan in the cement industry, supported by GIZ national expert, Mrs Lusi Widowati. Discussions were held based on each topic within the MRV draft, including the MRV for inventory on CO2 emission and mitigation action. All of the participants jointly revised and actively gave inputs on the draft in this discussion session. As a result from this fruitful three-day workshop, the draft of MRV Plan was discussed and agreed among the cement industries, ASI, and MoI; and will be revised based on the inputs.   For more information please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
