The development of Poland’s economy has been truly impressive over the last three decades. Its size has almost quintupled since 1989. Its diversification and technological advancement have also been remarkable. The environmental protection sector is a particularly conspicuous area. A great number of highly innovative businesses – mostly SME’s – have developed a wide range of technologies and solutions aiming at greater energy efficiency, a  better use of resources and a reduction of the impact of human-related activities on the environment. The automotive sector is a  telling example here. Zero-emission vehicles designed and manufactured in Poland are capturing

6

successfully the domestic and worldwide markets. Polish authorities facilitate the development of the green industry by such initiatives as Greenevo, a programme by the Ministry of Environment. We also take active part in climate negotiations. This year will see the third time that Poland hosts the Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. This clearly shows our commitment in the area of environmental protection. Polish Aid Programme is also increasingly oriented towards addressing the needs of the local communities to protect their environment. Drawing from the experience of a  successful


economic transition, our businesses and administration are open to share their knowledge in environmental technologies with other countries, regardless of their current progress on the path to a low-emission economy. The following publication gives an overview of the achievements of Polish companies and research institutes in the area of green technologies and environmental protection. We bear it in mind that the ambitious goals of the Paris Agreement require concrete and close cooperation on the technical level among

the parties involved. We believe this booklet will be a useful tool for the businesses and institutions seeking to establish or strengthen such cooperation with Polish entities.

I. Introduction

1) Polish Development Cooperation Polish development cooperation is carried out pursuant to:

• the Act on development cooperation • the Multiannual Programme for Development Cooperation 2016–2020 • Annual Plans for development cooperation

The basic documents on Polish development cooperation are available on the website www.polskapomoc.gov.pl. Poland is a member of the Development Assistance Committee of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD/DAC). Polish development cooperation is implemented in accordance with the development policy of the European Union and global agenda of the United Nations for the years 2015–2030, or objectives of Sustainable Development, which take into account the economic, social and environmental sustainability dimensions, i.e. the eradication of poverty, ensuring environmental sustainability and sustainable consumption and production.

a) Environmental protection in the Polish Development Assistance system Environmental protection is a priority theme in four out of ten priority countries for Polish development assistance set out in the strategic document Multiannual Programme for Development Cooperation 2016–2020, i.e. Ethiopia, Tanzania, Kenya, and Senegal. Measures implemented in these countries fit within the priority Protection of natural resources and promotion of sustainable development and Mitigating negative effects of climate change, including prevention of natural disasters that contribute to achieving the following results: • improving water management, including better access to water and sanitary infrastructure; promoting hygiene; • improving access to renewable energy sources; • arresting deforestation, desertification, and soil degradation; • enhancing the capacities to prevent and respond to natural and man-made disasters.

1) Polish Development Cooperation

In addition, projects in the field of environmental protection can be implemented in selected countries, indicated in the annual Plans for development cooperation under the Small Grants System.

b) Instruments of development cooperation The “Polish Development Assistance” call for proposals by the Minister of Foreign Affairs The “Polish development assistance” call for proposals announced each year by the Minister of Foreign Affairs is addressed to partners of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs implementing commissioned public tasks in the field of development cooperation. The call for proposal is designed for 10 priority countries of Polish development assistance: 4 Eastern Partnership countries (Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine), 4 African countries (Ethiopia, Tanzania, Kenya, Senegal) as well as Palestine and Myanmar. The entities eligible to apply for funding in the call for proposals include: NGOs registered in Poland; local government units for projects in Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, and Ukraine; public and private universities, research institutes, the Polish Academy of Sciences and its organisational units. Development projects carried out by Polish diplomatic missions The development projects are initiated and carried out by Polish diplomatic missions worldwide in cooperation with local partners such as local NGOs, state institutions, local authorities or religious organisations including missionary centres in situ, which, apart from their religious activity, implement projects aiming at the rise of the local population standard of living. Aimed at achieving the Millennium Development Goals, these projects enhance the lives of socially disadvantaged groups and provide them with better prospects for their future. The assistance is predominantly addressed to women and children, especially in terms of poverty eradication, educational opportunities and health care improvement. Projects include not only small-scale infrastructure investments (i.e. so-called hard projects, such as renovation of facilities, construction of wells, purchase of equipment), but also trainings for members of local communities (i.e. soft projects). These cost-effective initiatives have a  substantial impact on beneficiaries as the assistance reaches them directly. Prepared and initiated at a local level, projects take into account the real needs of the most vulnerable groups of people as well as the social and cultural reality of a given community. Project management does not generate additional costs as it is part of the diplomatic mission’s responsibilities.

I. Introduction

c) Projects “Biomass pellets – a practical way to reduce deforestation of the slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro” TANZANIA The project has focused on Mt. Kilimanjaro, a  mountain of exceptional importance for the ecosystem and people living within a large area of Tanzania and Kenya, for whom the mountain is the primary source of water. Water is getting scarcer and scarcer by the year. One of the main reasons behind this phenomenon is increasing deforestation of the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro, as wood satisfies the need for energy used for cooking. Only a few families can afford to buy a gas cylinder. The local association TEACA and the Poland – East Africa Economic Foundation teach how to make pellets made of carbonised biomass and provide the necessary equipment. By involving schools, self-help groups of women and farmers, and providing environmental education, the TEACA encourages cooperation in the production of pellets for own use and for sale in the nearby town of Moshi. Apart from playing an educational and mentoring role, the TEAC plans to develop the production and sale of pellets manufactured with machines also coming from Poland in the following years.

1) Polish Development Cooperation

“Preventing deforestation in the Embu region through the purchase of energy-efficient cooking stoves for the local community and a reforestation campaign” Kenya The local communities in Embu consume more than 50 tonnes of wood fuel per day for cooking, which means the consumption of 1,500 tonnes per month. Furthermore, wood is used as building material. This creates a huge risk to the existing forests in the area. It contributes to the deforestation of land and air pollution (use of open fireplaces). Cooking over open fire causes serious respiratory diseases, especially in children who accompany their mothers at home during the day, also during cooking. The project objectives include the purchase of energy-efficient portable stoves that reduce carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere (due to their special design, they emit much less smoke) and lower wood fuel consumption by 60%. Project implementation – Polish Embassy in Nairobi The value of co-financing by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – EUR 14,482.00 The project was implemented in 2015

“Sun for development. Small solar power plants for schools in northern Tanzania – in search of solutions ensuring the sustainability of rural electrification projects” Tanzania Over 50% of secondary schools in the region of Arusha do not have access to stable and affordable sources of electricity. The project has aimed at increasing access to renewable energy in secondary schools in the region of Arusha and enhancing the renewable energy potential in the region by creating a model of energy co-operatives and a  resolution fund. As the project outcome, Photo – Ambrogio Miserocchi 11


I. Introduction

three secondary schools in the region of Arusha (1750 students) have been equipped with small solar power plants, which improved their educational offer. A model of an energy co-operative with a resolution fund has been developed and implemented, with prospects of building more solar power plants in the region. The long-term effects of the project include: better and more competitive educational institutions in the Arusha region, enhanced environmental protection in the region due to the use of renewable and distributed energy resources, more investments in renewable energy sources in the region and lower environmental pressure. Project Implementation – Fundacja Artykuł 25 The value of co-financing by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – PLN 255,501. The project has been implemented under the “Polish Development Assistance 2015” call for proposals.

“Support for education in Southern Ethiopia by providing lighting systems to primary schools and equipment to school libraries” Ethiopia A Polish foundation has purchased and installed solar lighting systems in 100 primary schools in two administrative regions of Ethiopia – Oromo and the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples’ Region. In addition, books for school libraries have been bought. Workshops on the basics of solar lighting systems operation and a seminar on teaching methodology and library management have been conducted. In regions where the project has been carried out, children help their parents look after grazing cattle during the day and walk to school after sunset. The project has helped improve the conditions and quality of the education of children and youth from marginalised rural areas of southern Ethiopia and increase the number of students completing a  full cycle of basic education. Illuminated rooms are used particularly by the youngest children, but are also used by adult residents of villages and towns. The project has also promoted solar energy in Ethiopia. Local communities have learned about alternative solutions compared to the most common method of house illumination by means of wood or charcoal. Project implementation – The Polish Centre for International Aid Foundation The value of co-financing by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – PLN 1,252,037. The project has been implemented as part of the “Polish Development Assistance 2016” call for proposals.

“Energy of rural areas” – provision of solar power energy systems to schools and rural households in Sindh” Pakistan Photo – Embassy of Poland in Islamabad

The project has addressed the energy provision problems in Badin and Thatta districts in Sindh province, Pakistan. The region is exposed to frequent natural disasters, such as floods and mudslides. Besides, local communities suffer from high level poverty, lack of education and unemployment. Only 52% of households were connected to electric power system before the implementation of the project. But even then the electricity was available for only for 4–8 hours per day (or 2 hours during the summer time). As a result, kerosene lamps were widely used which had negative impact on environment, health and safety standards. The provision of solar power energy systems has benefited about 200 households and schools in Sindh province and has resulted in a dramatic fall of the use of kerosene lamps. Now thanks to the new source of power children can study in the evenings, parents can extend their working hours and gain more income. Health and safety standards have been significantly improved.

Project implementation – Polish Embassy in Islamabad The value of co-financing by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – EUR 18 000,00 The project was implemented in 2017

“Livelihoods improvements through integrated and environmental friendly employment development in South Kenya” Kenya The 2-year project was an answer to the needs of the rural communities in South Kenya. 340 local agricultural cooperatives (more than 800 pupils and their teachers in three counties: Machakos, Makueni and Kitui) have gained better access to safe water thanks to the implementation of the project. Altogether, 9 villages and about 5 000 people have, in one way or another, benefited

I. Introduction

from Polish Aid activities in the region. The sand dam technology has been used to achieve the goal. The technology is the most cost-effective method of capturing rain water in drylands. A sand dam is a reinforced rubble cement wall built across a seasonal sandy river. It retains rainwater and recharges groundwater. The project was holistic in approach and consisted of sand dam construction, hygiene training, farmland terracing, seed distribution. Now the access to the water is available for the whole year and that enables farmers to devote more time to the use of more sophisticated agricultural techniques. They facilitate the production of food and at the same time secure and diverse food supply. This is particularly important in the time of drought. The agricultural techniques used include intercropping, zero grazing system, crop diversification and building seed bank. Project implementation – Polish Humanitarian Action The value of co-financing by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – PLN 783 152,80 in 2018 and PLN 1 089 480,86 in 2019. The project has been implemented under the “Polish Development Assistance 2018” call for proposals.

2) Greenevo – Green Technology Accelerator The Greenevo—Green Technology Accelerator is an original project by the Ministry of the Environment, financed by the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management. The aim of the project is to create favourable conditions for commercialising environmental technologies in Poland and abroad, offered by Polish entrepreneurs. As a result, the process of sustainable development is being stimulated. Under the Greenevo project, i.e. since 2009, representatives of the Polish Government, together with more than 60 representatives of Greenevo project winners have taken part in organised missions to more than 50 countries around the world. They participated in specialised trade fairs, seminars, conferences, and meetings. On average, Greenevo project winners had an opportunity to participate in more than two trips organised as part of the project. It has provided a significant support to these companies. Greenevo winners have also organised trips on their own, seeking to establish or strengthen business contacts, or implement specific technologies. Apart from the project, companies have participated in a total of 102 trade fairs in Poland and 53 abroad. In 2014 and 2015, Greenevo recorded a  rise in international brand recognition. In 2014, the programme was included in the Best Practice Group 2014 selected by the European Society for Quality Research (ESQR) in Brussels. In 2015, the the programme received a Green World Award, recognising it as one of the best initiatives supporting environmental protection in the world.

2) Greenevo – Green Technology Accelerator

The project’s main outcomes include a wider availability of solutions that reduce the negative environmental impact of human activities on Polish, European, and global markets. The project facilitates the dissemination, promotion and support of environmentally-friendly solutions for the mining industry, solutions supporting the efficiency of energy and materials, technologies in the field of waste and waste-water management, low-carbon technologies, technologies used to build and complete energy-efficient buildings. Indirectly, the project supports and promotes SME entrepreneurs doing business in the green economy sector in the areas of biodiversity conservation, renewable energy sources, climate protection, passive house solutions, air protection, and low-emission transport. The outcomes of Greenevo activity also increase and promote green decent jobs, as a  vast majority of Greenevo project winners developed and expanded their operations after joining the project. In addition, the Greenevo programme has consistently improved ecological awareness of Polish and foreign buyers of technologies/ products/solutions to reduce the ecological footprint. In this way, consumers can more easily find pro-environmental solutions for greater energy efficiency or replace traditional energy sources with renewable ones. The project also raises awareness of entrepreneurs about doing business in a sustainable manner, in accordance with the circular economy principles. According to the conclusions of the Rio+20, the implementation of the Greenevo project is one of the key important instruments supporting the process of transition to a  green economy, which really affects the implementation of the idea of sustainable development in Poland and in the world. The project promotes doing business in accordance with the idea of circular economy, particularly with regard to supporting and promoting eco-innovation and environmental technologies in all key areas of the economy.

Size of company: Small Movable grate technology in burners produced by CWD has been awarded in GreenEvo competition. Burners that use this technology can burn almost each type of solid fuel like biomass or waste. Our technology is based on movable cast iron grates, built in sections. To each section we supply primary and secondary air to improve combustion. Thanks to sections, we can build a burner for each type of fuel, because we can plan air distribution individually. Our burner can be used in biomass furnaces and boilers and also waste thermal plants. The advanced thermal treatment technologies pre-treat municipal waste management prior to the thermal stage and there are a variety of possible energy recovery system configurations available, some of which offer the potential for higher yearly efficiencies than a conventional incineration plant. Our thermal plants are individually designed according to customer’s or investor’s need. Our incineration involves the combustion of unprepared raw or residual municipal solid waste. Incineration plant combustion temperatures are in excess of 850 C and the waste is converted into carbon dioxide and water. Any non-combustible materials (e.g. metals, glass) remain as a solid, known as Bottom Ash, which contains a small amount of residual carbon. For further information contact us, we can offer complete systems or just part of the system like: gasifiers, heat exchangers, heating boilers, combustion chambers and burners with movable grates.

Size of company: Micro Lesss is an intelligent control system of exterior lighting, depending on HD cameras, detecting presence of people near a lighthouse or other outdoor lighting. If a person (a pedestrian, a cyclist) is present in the vicinity of the lighthouse, lighting system is working at full capacity (100% light output). However, when in the vicinity of the lighting system, there are no people or vehicles, the system reduces the light output and energy consumption to 10% of the nominal value. The system consists of the HD cameras with advanced image analysis, which enables classification of objects (animal, human, cyclist, passenger car, truck, etc.). Cameras in the system serve two roles. On the one hand, they are responsible for object detecting and transmission of the signal which controls luminaries. On the other hand, they are responsible for recording video in HD quality to enhance the level of security. The whole solution is based on existing cable infrastructure. With this solution, the system practically does not require any upgrading of cable infrastructure of the existing lighting systems, and in the case of new cabling, costs are comparable with the costs of installing traditional lighting systems.
