SECTION A. General description of small-scale project activity A.1 Title of the small-scale project activity: >> GHG reduction by chemical recovery in Pulp and Paper manufacturing facility. Version 01 Date: 21/08/07

A.2.

Description of the small-scale project activity:

>> The project proponent, Shree Shyam Pulp and Board Mills Limited (SSPBML), is one of the leading integrated paper manufacturing units in the state of Uttaranchal, India. The paper manufacturing facility of SSPBML uses bagasse as the raw material and has the paper production capacity of 150 tons per day. Purpose of the project activity The project proponent, SSPBML, commissioned a chemical recovery plant in October 2006 to recover the caustic soda from the waste black liquor generated in the pulping section of the integrated paper manufacturing process which would reduce the amount of soda required to be purchased as the pulp manufacturing process requires large quantity of caustic soda which is generally procured form the prevailing chemical manufacturers in the market.. Since the recovery process of the caustic soda involves a much lesser input of energy than that required in the manufacturing of caustic soda, there would be a reduction in the consumption of electricity (thus leading to a reduction in the GHG emissions). The total recovering capacity of the project plant is 60 tons per day of caustic recovery. The following paragraphs illustrate how the caustic requirements in the pulping section were being met prior to the project activity and how are they met after the project implementation. Pre Project Scenario Prior to the project activity, the caustic soda requirements for the paper manufacturing process in SSPBMLs unit were being completely met by the amount of soda procured from the chemical manufacturers prevailing in the market. The caustic soda manufacturing process followed by the chemical manufacturers is quite energy intensive. There are mainly three processes1 followed in the country for the caustic soda manufacturing. All of these processes involve varied inputs of electricity, as shown in the table below:

Process Diaphragm Process Mercury Cell Membrane Cell

Average Power Consumption (KWh/MT) 3500 3300 2900

Since 1986, the government has made it mandatory that new caustic soda units be set up using membrane cell technology only. Indian manufacturers are slowly shifting from mercury to membrane cell process, and, at present, about 66% of the domestic capacity is based on membrane cell technology. The paper manufacturing unit of Shree Shyam Pulp and Board Mills Limited has been procuring the caustic required for its plant from two Indian2 chemical manufacturers namely; 1. Punjab Alkali and Chemicals Limited (PACL) 2. Shree Ram Vinayak and Chemicals Industry (SRVC) The following table gives the energy consumption and the % of total soda consumed procured from each manufacturer in the past 3 years: Year KWh consumed per ton of KWh consumed per ton of % amount of soda manufacture3 by PACL soda manufacture4 by SRVC soda procured from PACL 2656 2699 2699 2664 2692 2692 50% 50% 50% % amount of soda procured from SRVC 50% 50% 50%

Thus, the weighted average electricity consumed in KWh per ton of caustic soda manufactured is 2683.67 KWh. Post Project Scenario The project activity involved the commissioning of a chemical recovery plant wherein caustic soda is recovered from waste black liquor generated in the process of manufacturing paper. The total installed recovering capacity of the chemical recovery plant is 60 tons per day of recovered soda.

Since the energy required recovering one ton of soda is much lesser than what is required to manufacture the same quantity of fresh stock in a conventional plant, the project activity aids in reducing the emissions of green house gases. Project activitys contribution to Sustainable Development The indicators of sustainable development as stipulated by the Government of India in the interim approval guidelines for CDM projects are: Environmental well being Technological well being Economic well being Social well being The project activity proposed by SSPBML contributes to the above in following manner: Environmental well being: The project activity will result in the reduction of GHG emissions as a much lesser quantity of electricity will be consumed in recycling the caustic soda than that consumed in manufacturing the fresh stock. Technological well being: The technology used in project activity is safe and sound and would also provide a highly replicable model for other industries in this sector. Economical well being: Soda recovered from chemical recovery plant (CRP) will reduce the quantity of soda required to be procured from the market. The reduced soda requirement will lead to reduction in total cost of raw material which eventually brings in economic benefits to the company. Social well being: Installation of additional equipments in the plant will generate direct and indirect employment opportunities for skilled as well as unskilled labours in the region. This will improve the local standard of living. Project activity will also facilitate capacity building amongst employees of the plant. A.3.

A.4. Technical description of the small-scale project activity: >> The black liquor generated in the pulp mill has a total solids concentration of upto 8% which needs to be increased considerably before the liquor can be burnt .This liquor is concentrated upto 45-48% in multiple effect evaporators and then further concentrated to 62% solids content in the cascade evaporator.

PROJECT DESIGN DOCUMENT FORM (CDM-SSC-PDD) - Version 03

CDM Executive Board

The concentrated black liquor with 62% solids content is then fired in the recovery boiler. The concentrated liquor that comes out from the furnace as molten mass is in the form of smelt which consists mainly of sodium carbonate. The smelt is then dispersed in the main dissolving tank where it is termed as green liquor. The hot gases from the furnace pass to the top of the boiler tank to generate steam and convert the water into steam in recovery boiler and the steam thus generated is reused in the evaporation plant. The green liquor so produced is pumped to the causticizing plant. The green liquor received in the causticizing plant from the recovery boiler is then transferred to the drum slaker where it is mixed with free lime. The green liquor is clarified and causticized in a causticizing plant with lime where sodium carbonate is converted to sodium hydroxide for pulping. The complete process can be depicted from the flow diagram given below:

A.4.5. Confirmation that the small-scale project activity is not a debundled component of a large scale project activity: >> According to, appendixC of the indicative simplified modalities and procedure for small scale CDM project activity. A project activity is considered to be a debundled component of large project activity if there is a registered small scale CDM project or request for registration by another small scale project activity By the same project participants; In the same project category and technology/measure; and Registered within the previous 2 years; and Whose project boundary is within 1 km of the project boundary of the proposed small-scale activity at the closest point. SSPBML has implemented small scale projects for power and steam generation which do not fall under the same project category as this project. Hence, it can be said that above points are not valid in case of SSPBML project activity and it is not a debundled component of a large project activity.

SECTION B. Application of a baseline and monitoring methodology B.1. Title and reference of the approved baseline and monitoring methodology applied to the small-scale project activity: >> Title: Reduction in Consumption of Electricity by Recovering Soda from Paper Manufacturing Process. Type: III Other project activities Category: M. Version 02, EB 33 B.2 >> Justification of the choice of the project category:

According to the methodology, category III.M. is applicable under the following conditions; This project category comprises of technology/measures for recovering caustic soda from waste black liquor generated in paper manufacturing. Production of caustic soda in traditional soda manufacturing processes requires more energy in comparison to recovery of equivalent amount of caustic soda. The project activity involves commissioning of a chemical recovery plant wherein caustic soda will be recovered from waste black liquor generated in pulp mill. The total installed capacity of this plant is 60 tons per day of recovered soda and the energy required to recover 1 ton of soda is much lesser than what is required to manufacture the same quantity in a conventional plant. Measures are limited to those that result in emission reduction of less than or equal to 60 ktCO2e annually. The project activity results in the emission reduction of less than 60 ktCO2e annually which can be evidenced from the CER calculations shown in the PDD. B.3. Description of the project boundary: >> According to the paragraph 3 of methodology AMS.III.M. (Version 02, EB 33), the project boundary includes all physical, geographical sites where: (a) The waste liquor is processed for recovery; (b) The physical site where caustic soda is procured; (c) The electricity generation plants connected to soda manufacturing and recovery plants are located. B.4. Description of baseline and its development: >> The baseline can be established by considering the various alternatives available and zeroing upon the one which is the most plausible. The various credible alternatives that were available with the project proponent are as follows: Implementation of the similar project activity without considering the CDM benefits.

10

PROJECT DESIGN DOCUMENT FORM (CDM-SSC-PDD) - Version 03

CDM Executive Board

This alternative cannot be considered a plausible baseline scenario because of the barriers associated with its implementation as discussed in the subsequent sections of this document. Procuring the soda required for the paper plant form the available chemical manufacturers. This can be considered as the baseline scenario as this has been the usual practice and does not have any barriers associated with it. Thus from the above discussion it can be deduced that meeting the chemical requirements from the purchase of the same form the market is the baseline to this project activity. B.5. Description of how the anthropogenic emissions of GHG by sources are reduced below those that would have occurred in the absence of the registered small-scale CDM project activity: >> In accordance with paragraph 28 of the simplified modalities and procedures for small-scale CDM project activities, a simplified baseline and monitoring methodology may be used for a small-scale CDM project activity if project participants are able to demonstrate to a designated operational entity that the project activity would otherwise not be implemented due to the existence of one or more barrier(s) listed in Attachment A to Appendix B. Prior to the project activity SSPBML was treating black liquor in an effluent treatment plant and effluent discharge was meeting the prescribed standards for effluent discharge stipulated by state pollution control authority. SSPBMLs enterprise to recover caustic soda from waste liquor is a voluntary initiative to save energy despite of various barriers in its implementation as elaborated in following paragraph. SSPBMLs management decided to go ahead with the activity considering the CDM benefits that it may accrue upon the successful registration of the project as a CDM activity which may help in overcoming the associated barriers. Prevailing practice barrier The pulp and paper industry is one of the oldest industries established in India and dates back to around 200 years, .According to the latest available figures, the total number of pulp & paper mills in the

country is estimated to be around 6255 with total installed capacity of over 7.5 million tons which is likely to increase to 8.3 million tons by 2010 & over 14 million tones by the year 2020. The graph below indicates the growth in paper production and capacity of the country in past few decades.

There are 12 small and medium scaled paper manufacturing units (including SSPBML), as listed above. At present, none of the units is equipped with a chemical recovery system. Overall in the state of Uttaranchal there is only one large scale paper manufacturing unit (Century Papers Capacity 84600 TPA) which has the provision for chemical recovery, Thus, it can be deduced that none of the small or medium scaled paper units in the state of project activity Uttaranchal are equipped with any chemical recovery system due to constraints7 like high capital investment, and nature of black liquor (i.e. high silica content, low solid, high viscosity etc) in the implementation and thereafter operation of the system. Till date, the prevailing practice in the region has been to discharge the black liquor as such (after necessary treatment to meet the stipulated pollution control board standards) without any recovery or after partial recovery of chemical. The above discussion highlights the Indian paper industry with focus on the chemical recovery system. It can be inferred that the caustic soda recovery is not a prevailing practice in the region and thus there is always a high level of uncertainty associated with its successful operation.

Technological barrier

SSPBML is an agro based paper unit and utilizes bagasse as the main raw material for pulping and paper

manufacturing and thus may face the following obstacles 8in soda recovery. 1. A high content of silica in raw material and thus in black liquor can result in frequent scaling of evaporator, and boiler. It may also lead to higher moisture content in sludge generating in causticizing plant thereby causing sludge handling problems due to its bulky volume. 2. A high content of chloride in raw material and thus in black liquor results in scaling problems in evaporator and boiler and thus affect the working of the boiler and can also cause problems in smelt flow in recovery boiler and in the process of causticizing in causticizing plant. 3. High viscosity of the black liquor, especially the concentrated liquor (TS>40%), hampers the further concentration of the liquor to desired concentration (>50%). 4. The high concentration of black liquor can also cause frequent choking of flow pipes. B.6. Emission reductions:

B.6.1.

SECTION D. Environmental impacts >> D.1. If required by the host Party, documentation on the analysis of the environmental impacts of the project activity: >> The project proponent has procured the legal consents required for environmental compliance from state pollution control board in form of No Objection certificate for establishing the project activity. The following impacts have been identified by SSPBML on various environmental attributes due to the project plant. Land and water Since the project has been implemented within the premises of SSPBML no additional land was procured.
