Objective:

The objective of the proposed NAMA is to initiate the transformation of Mongolia’s construction sector towards a less carbon intensive development path through the introduction of supplementary cementitious materials (SCM) that can replace up to 70% of cement in concrete. SCM are produced by a mechanical process that consumes 90-95% less energy compared to cement manufacture. The envisaged measures consist of the establishment a 350,000 t/y SCM production facility, the design of supportive policies and management of the standardization process.

Activities: (2015 - 2019)
The outlined project will contribute to ensure the effective implementation and achievement for climate change mitigation strategies. The climate change concerns will be integrated into other national and sectoral development plans and policy documents and lead to transformational changes to the existing environmental regulations, social and economic or other sectoral development policy documents, and other related laws. The outlined project also provides a new opportunity for policymakers to accelerate energy efficiency for a long-term policy planning in Mongolia. In addition, the outlined project will promote the market transformation in construction sector towards a less carbon intensive development path.

Impact and MRV

Cumulative GHG reductions: 8.4 MtCO2e
Mitigative capacity:

Additional GHG emission reductions may also be achieved in case SCM-based concrete is used for paving roads as it would result in 5% reduction in petrol consumption compared to using PC based concrete paving (source: third party test reports). According national newspaper UB Post, 6000km of roads require restoration."Additional GHG emission reductions may also be achieved in case SCM-based concrete is used for paving roads as it would result in 5% reduction in petrol consumption compared to using PC based concrete paving (source: third party test reports).

Co-benefits:

Social: Information has not been provided
Economic: *SCM delivers stronger and longer-lasting concrete;
  • SCM concrete improves mitigation of alkali-silica reactivity, reduces heat of hydration, reduces concrete permeability, improves protection from chloride and sulphate attacks;
  • SCM concrete road paving significantly increase paving productivity and road surface durability as well as reduce petrol consumption by about 5%;
  • By extending the life of structures, SCM concrete extends their replacement cycle while at the same time reducing maintenance costs.
  • Plant construction costs is 1/10th of PC plant;
  • Replacement of energy intensive PC process with mechanically activated SCM means low O&M costs;
  • Competitive market price, at most similar to ordinary PC;
  • Superior return on investment due to a combination of lower CAPEX and OPEX.
Environmental: *The project uses either fly ash recycled from coal-fired power plants or very abundant natural resources (volcanic ash) as raw material, while Portland Cement (PC) production consumes the depleting natural reserves of limestone;
  • The project reduces coal-based energy consumption by 90% and reduce water demand in concrete by 40% compared to PC-based concrete;
  • Avoided harmful emissions of mercury and particulate matters associated with coal consumption can contribute to reduce atmospheric pollution.
