Greenhouse Gas Reduction

The original development objectives of the project were to encourage the production of methanol from biomass residues for use in the transportation sector and to establish energy service companies (ESCOs) to promote the utilization of newer and more efficient motors in the copper mining sector. Project activities either aimed at replacing fuel oil with natural gas, which is apparently more efficient fuel and generates lesser quantities of CO2 emissions, or else at replacing fossil fuels with renewable sources of energy such as fire wood.
