2. The feasibility study will include the four production locations of ISCOR. The focus of the feasibility study at each production location has been defined as follows:

· Vanderbijlpark: blast furnaces and converters up to and including the hot strip mill and the heavy plate mill.

· Newcastle: blast furnaces and converters up to and including the blooming mill.

· Pretoria: the COREX unit.

· Vereeniging: energy saving measures to reduce gas consumption.

Describe briefly how costs are determined:

1. The AIJ component costs (as indicated above) refer to the financial support of the Dutch Joint Implementation Pilot Project Programme to the implementation of the CO2 emission reduction plan by Hoogovens/ISCOR.

2. The total CO2 emissions at ISCOR are estimated at 880.000 tons per year. The CO2 emission reduction potential due to the implementation of the energy efficiency options that will be identified during the feasibility study, are estimated at 150.000 tons per year.

3. The feasibility study will determine, among others, the energy efficiency options to be implemented, and the corresponding costs.

A. 5) Mutually agreed assessment procedures:

Describe the procedures, including name of organisations involved):

1. The studies to determine the GHG baseline emissions, and to monitor the GHG emission reductions due to the Project, will be executed by the project partners themselves: Hoogovens and ISCOR.

2. The GHG baseline and monitoring studies will be implemented according to the guidelines of the Dutch Joint Implementation Registration Centre (JIRC) and the South African Clearing House for Activities Implemented Jointly.

3. The designated authorities for AIJ in the Netherlands (Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment) and in South Africa (Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism) will present the project as an AIJ project to the Secretariat of the UNFCCC, and will report on progress and final outcome of the Project to the Secretariat.

a) Please ensure that detailed contact information for all organisations mentioned is reported under

section A.2 above.

B. Governmental acceptance, approval or endorsement

Bearing in mind that all activities implemented jointly under this pilot phase require prior acceptance, approval or endorsement by the Governments of the Parties participating in these activities, which shall be shown as follows:

(a) In the case of joint reporting, the report is submitted by the designated national authority of one participating Party with the concurrence of all other participating Parties as evidenced by attached letters issued by the relevant national authorities;

(b) In the case of separate reporting, the reports are submitted separately by the designated national authority of each and every participating Party. Information will only be compiled once reports have been received from all participating Parties.

B. 1) For the activity:

The current report is the first report on the project "Energy efficiency improvement at ISCOR".

Copies have been attached of the Arrangement between the Minister of Development Co-operation of The Netherlands and the Government of the Republic of South Africa. The Arrangement confirms the mutual government acceptance of the project "Energy efficiency improvement at ISCOR" as part of the Activities Implemented Jointly in pursuance of the objectives of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

* First report and joint reporting: please add copies of letters of endorsement by each designated national authority of Parties involved in the activity.

* Subsequent reports:

Activity was: o suspended

o terminated earlier

Describe: n.a.

B. 2) This report is a joint report:

n Yes, forward copy of agreement/endorsement by the designated national authorities involved

o No

B. 3) General short comment by the government(s) if applicable:

C. Compatibility with and supportiveness of national economic development and socio-economic and environment priorities and strategies

Describe (to the extent possible) how the activity is compatible with and supportive of national economic development and socio-economic and environment priorities and strategies

The Project is executed with financial support of, and fully compatible with, the Joint Implementation Pilot Projects Programme of The Netherlands.

The Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism of the Republic of South Africa ensures the project to be supportive to the national development goals of South Africa (see attached Arrangement).

D. Benefits derived from the activities implemented jointly project

Whenever possible, quantitative information should be provided. Failing that, a qualitative description should be given. If quantitative information becomes available, it could be submitted using the update(s). (If the amount of quantitative information is too large, the source could be indicated.)

Item

Please fill in

Describe environmental benefits in detail:

Greenhouse gas emission reduction due to the energy efficiency measures.

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of environmental benefits?

No, except for an indicative overall estimation of the CO2 reduction potential

Describe social/cultural benefits in detail:

N.a.

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of social benefits?

No

Describe economic benefits in detail:

The implementation of the GHG reduction measures will reduce the energy intensity of the steel produced by ISCOR. Consequently, this will reduce the production cost and improve the competitiveness of South African steel on the international market.

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of economic benefits?

No; this issue will also be addressed during the feasibility studies

E. Calculation of the contribution of activities implemented jointly projects that bring about real, measurable and long-term environmental benefits related to the mitigation of climate change that would not have occurred in the absence of such activities

E. 1) Estimated emissions without the activity (project baseline):

Description of the baseline or reference scenario, including methodologies applied:

· The baseline scenario will be elaborated during the feasibility study.

· The methodology applied will follow the guidelines of the Joint Implementation Registration Centre (JIRC).

· A preliminary estimation of the total "before the project" GHG emissions at the four ISCOR locations amounts approximately 880.000 tons of CO2 per year.

E. 2) Estimated emissions with the activity:

Description of the scenario, including methodologies applied:

· The emission reduction scenario will be elaborated in detail during the feasibility study, based on an inventory of feasible reduction measures and the corresponding costs.

· A preliminary estimation of the total reduction potential of GHG emissions, based on the experiences of Hoogovens and due to the implementation of the reduction measures to be selected, is about 150.000 tons of CO2 per year.
