Mechanisms to Improve Energy Efficiency in Small Industries. Part Three: Some Problems and Solutions in Khurja

Abstract

The main objectives of the project R7413 (Mechanisms to Improve Energy Efficiency in Small Industries) are to promote mechanisms to increase the adoption of energy efficient technologies and practices in the case of one small scale industry sector in India and Ghana. The sector chosen in India is the ceramic sector. The focus of the work has been in one large cluster of ceramic firms in Khurja, India.

This section reviews previous studies conducted on the Khurja pottery cluster and the various recommendations made; some seven studies have been conducted in the past ten years. Then each type of kiln: coal-fired downdraft, shuttle, tunnel and gas fired kilns are examined, including their energy consumption. Lastly the dynamics of change in the pottery sector in terms of the movement away from downdraft kilns to tunnel and shuttle kilns are explored.
