Clean Development Mechanism

Basic aim of this project is the abatement of N2O and NOX (NO+NO2) emissions from the stack gases of Nitric Acid (HNO3) plant.

Global warming has become the most important challenge the world is facing in the 21st century. A lot of research and development is being done for curtailing greenhouse gas emissions, following its accession to the Kyoto Protocol of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). In January 2005, Pakistan made the Ministry of Environment, the Designated National Authority (DNA) for CDM under the protocol. A CDM cell was created in the Ministry in August 2005.

In order to care for the environment and greenhouse effect, the Management has installed a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) Project on its Nitric Acid plant.

It is expected that about 4 million CER's per annum will accrue from the start of the project up to 2020.

N. Serve Environmental Services GmbH assisted Fatima Fertilizer in registration of the CDM Project with the United Nations.

ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions, TKIS (former Uhde GmbH) had provided the technology and equipment and also helped with the implementation of the CDM Project for Fatima Fertilizer.
