Climate change initiative

This project focuses on the climate change initiative as part of the the Egypt Environmental Initiatives Fund (EEIF). This project assists the Government of Egypt in reducing the growth of greenhouse gas emissions by converting 50 brick-factory kilns near Cairo to natural gas technology. The project helps factory owners/managers install the new equipment and train maintenance staff. A pilot project resulted in a reduction of carbon monoxide emissions in participating factories by 95 percent, of carbon dioxide by 32 percent, and of smoke by 96 percent. Funding for this project came from CIDA's Climate Change Initiative to support implementation of the Kyoto Accord. http://cida71.acdi- 685256FF10031D76B?OpenDocument
