    MRV Methodology “Introducing a High Performance Industrial Furnace for Aluminum Industry in country A””

1. Title of Methodology

    Introducing a High Performance Industrial Furnace for Aluminum Industry in “country A””

2. Summary of the Methodology for the Project

    This methodology is applicable to projects that reduce GHG emissions in the reference scenario,

    through implementation of an energy efficient high performance industrial furnace with regenerative burner technology to aluminum sector in country A”.

    This methodology is also applicable to either; a project to replace an existing industrial furnace

    with a high performance industrial furnace, or a Greenfield project to install a high performance

    furnace.

3. Eligibility Criteria

    This methodology is applicable to projects that fully satisfy the following conditions.

     Check

    Condition 1 A high performance industrial furnace implemented in the planned

    project shall be equipped with regenerative burners.

    Condition 2 The high performance industrial furnace shall be installed for the

    aluminum sector.

    Condition 3 The same heat source shall be used by the waste heat generating

    equipment and the recipient equipment.

    Condition 4 Unused waste heat shall exist within the project boundary prior to the

    project implementation.

    Condition 5 Fossil fuels and electricity consumption by the high performance

    industrial furnace shall be measureable after the project

    implementation.

5. Necessary Data for Calculation

    The data that requires presetting at the registration stage of the project or monitoring after the start of the project is determined below based on the calculation method selected in section 1.4. If the data shown below is imported, a calculation tool is provided in this methodology that will allow you to measure emission reductions.

6. Terms and Definitions

    Term Definition

    Regenerative burner The regenerative burner has two burners and two regenerators.

    Operating in pairs, one burner fires while the heat from exhausts

    gas is recovered by the regenerator. Burner operations are

    switched within an application specific time period, and the

    combustion air going through the heated regenerator is pre-heated

    to reduce fuel consumption.

    High performance Refers to an industrial furnace that utilizes regenerative burner

    industrial furnace and “high temperature air combustion” technologies whereby a

    fuel and pre-heated air is fed at high-velocity and burned in the

    furnace,.

7. Project Boundary

    The project boundary shall include the following equipment.

    ; Waste heat recovery and waste heat utilization systems (waste heat generation equipment,

    waste heat recovery equipment, waste heat utilization equipment, etc.)

    ; Intake and exhaust systems (Intake and exhaust systems must always be installed in the

    industrial furnace in the reference scenario. But, if participants can prove that the reference

    emissions and project emissions are identical, or reference emissions are less than the

    project emissions, intake and exhaust systems can be excluded from the project boundary.)

8. Reference Scenario

    This methodology applies to Greenfield (the installation of a new high performance industrial furnace (does not involve retrofitting existing equipment)) and Replacement (the retrofitting of an existing industrial furnace with a high performance industrial furnace) projects. Therefore, the reference scenario for both projects in this methodology is set up in the following manner.

8.1. Retrofitting of Existing Equipment (Replacement)

    (1) The existing equipment will be used for the duration of the project.

    (2) The existing equipment will be replaced/retrofitted within the duration of the project (given

    some reason) to improve the level of energy efficiency.

8.2. Installation of new equipment (Greenfield)

    (1) Standard energy-efficient equipment will be introduced in the aluminum sector.

    9. Reference Emissions and Calculation

    The calculation methods of reference emissions for the retrofit of existing equipment (Replacement) and the installation of new equipment (Greenfield) are shown below. For each of these cases, there are two available calculation methods for the project participant to choose from. The project participant can choose his ideal method in terms of advantages in monitoring costs after the project is started and any historical data present for conventional equipment.

    However, (1) if a default value is being used that is set on the scheme side; it must be considered that it will be less than (2) the actual emission reductions based on the supplier’s own data.

    The project developers can learn about the available calculation procedures from the table below.

    The project developer can setup his own RR settings using the data shown below prior to executing the project, but he must do so considering Replacement and Greenfield cases.

    of project equipment that is believed would be installed.

    11. Leakage Emissions and Calculation Waste heat utilized effectively when carrying out a project does not generate leakage emissions

    since waste heat is not used prior to project implementation.

12. Calculating Emission Reductions

    Emission reductions are calculated from specific reference CO2 emissions and project

    emissions.

    ER CO2 emission reductions during year y [tCO2] y
