IIDFC was one of the pioneers of introducing environment friendly Hybrid Hoffman Kiln (HHK) technology in the brick making industry of the country. IIDFC’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project helped to establish the first HHK of the country in collaboration with UNDP & the World Bank. We alone have 09 energy efficient HHK units under our CDM project umbrella, which are saving 30,000-32,000 tons of Green House Gas (GHG) annually. With a vision to promote green technologies, IIDFC always encourages projects like Tunnel Kilns, HHKs and Non-fired Block Bricks i.e. Autoclave (AAC), Concrete Blocks etc.
To facilitate the clients with a greener vision, we have expertise in arranging Bangladesh Bank refinance scheme, ADB’s fund for Energy Efficient Brick kilns and collaboration with various development agencies.
Being the first local stakeholder, IIDFC set its footprint in Industrial Energy Efficiency Improvement Financing several years back. By an agreement with the Asian Development Bank (ADB), IIDFC provided technical assistance to conduct energy audits in 120 industries under six different sectors i.e. Steel, Cement, Textile/RMG, Sugar, Paper etc. We also had a Term Loan facility of 06 million US dollar from ADB for financing such projects.
IIDFC has its fully equipped team for providing One Stop solution in Industrial Energy Efficiency Improvement Financing. Starting from Energy Audit arranging, Walk-through Energy Audit, report preparing and applying for financing we have all solutions for you under one roof. The experience of working closely with ADB, USAID etc in this particular project keeps us one step ahead in arranging low cost fund.
Manufacturing of Energy Efficient products like LED Bulb/Tube lights including assembling plants and assembly plants for Solar PV cell/array are also promoted by us.
Sustainable Development involves a wholesome approach to the overall operations of a project. This starts from designing the project to construction to obtaining United States Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED certification. IIDFC provides package solution in this area for the whole process. Special refinance fund from the Bangladesh Bank is arranged for the eligible projects.
Being one of the most densely population, Bangladesh’s nature & environment is badly affected by the waste materials generated by Industrial processes. These wastes are polluting the soil and water bodies thus risking wildlife. To reduce the harmful effects of industrialization IIDFC promotes small to large scale waste management projects i.e. Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP), Water Treatment Plant (WTP) and Solid Waste Management processes. Financing is done at a much cheaper rate using Bangladesh Bank’s re-finance scheme.
With a strong footprint in the Paper & Plastic industry IIDFC extends its scopes for financing Recycling plants in these sectors. We arrange re-finance facility through Bangladesh Bank to encourage recycling practices and save the nature.
