Eco transport and air quality project
Description/achievement of initiative

The project objectives are to reduce Transport Co2 and associated Air pollutants at point of combustion and provide simple MRV for transport projects in cities and across a wide range of sectors, including public transport, power generation, non road mobile machinery, marine and passenger vehicles, freight vehicles, trains and cars & motorcycles. The project provides incentives and inclusion by reducing operators costs and providing innovative financial mechanisms along wioth knowledge transfer, training and local assembly and or manufacture.

Implementation methodologies

AMS III BC - http://cdm.unfccc.int/methodologies/SSCmethodologies/clarifications/17533The revised methodology allows for integration of new technology into sustainable transport projects, by improving the combustion efficiency of Diesel vehicles and machinery.Please refer to Ghana PDD for more information or email project@impactglobalemissionsolutions.com

Arrangements for Capacity-Building and Technology Transfer

Th UN is currently facilitating projects in Africa, along with co-operation of CCAC for wider knowledge transfer and wider capacity building. The technology has now been identified as an acceptable viable alternative for transport based emission reduction projects, especially in high sulfur regions where diesel particulate filters cannot work. The technology also reduces all species of PM by 80%, reduces NOX, SOX and Co2 while simultaneously improving Air quality

Coordination mechanisms/governance structure

The project will provide knowledge and technology transfer to implement projects, that are scaleable and replicable across a number of countries, can be co-ordinated and facilitated with UN, UNEP,UNDP and Governments either under local policy based initiatives or CDM/NAMA based projects. Projects will be developed in conjunction with local partners under PPP or local agreements
