Cementis assisted GIZ in assessing the economic impact of mitigation measures to reduce GHG emissions by the Tunisian cement industry.
The project aimed at assessing how investment in low-GHG technologies in the cement sector in Tunisia could increase the competitiveness of the said sector and could generate positive economic impact on all actors involved. In this context, the project aimed at quantifying the economic repercussions of the investment on all the players involved in the Tunisian cement market: cement factories, the Tunisian State, and any other stakeholder whether public or private.
Main tasks of Cementis consisted in:
- Interviewing the Tunisian cement companies in order to have a clear picture of the current situation in terms of mitigation measures (AFR, blended cement, energy efficiency, and renewable energy)
- Providing a benchmark on the current level of the above mentioned mitigation measures between Tunisia and comparable regional countries;
- Proposing different scenario mixing future cement production scenario and different degrees of implementation of the GHG mitigation measures
- Calculate the economic impact of the above scenario on the cement industry in Tunisia as well as on other stakeholders involved (State, consumers, etc.).
Cementis conclusions were discussed and presented at a workshop with the main stakeholders.
