Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) financing has great potential to encourage industries and companies to switch over to cleaner fuel technology. The project activities contribute to the Sustainable Development through the effective utilization of surplus renewable biomass residues which is easily available in the project area. Climate Change mitigation through the generation of eco-friendly heat and power and reduce the dependence on fossil fuel otherwise used for the same.

The aim of the project was to reduce Green House Gases (GHG) emission from steel manufacturing process. In this context, Winrock International prepared Project Idea Note (PIN) and Project Design Document (PDD) for replacing furnace oil and diesel with renewable biomass rice husk through gasification technology in the galvanizing process in the factory of Pioneer Wires Pvt. Ltd. located at Morang district.
