On 27 October, online workshops were launched in Jordan to give industry professionals from companies of the demonstration phase for MED TEST III on resource efficient production practices. Staff from two chemical and seven plastic producing companies, which have signed up for the demonstration phase for resource efficient production, attended the three-day workshop as an introduction to the UNIDO TEST methodology. This week, staff from the remaining six food companies will undertake a similar workshop.
“The course was valuable concerning its content and gave the participants motivation and belief to work hard on the project“ said Eng. Osama Khalil, Plant Manager of Layan for Chemicals Corporation. „We all wished it was conducted in person, but even virtually, I think it was very successful.”
The UNIDO TEST methodology is a systematic way of identifying the most feasible potentials for efficient use of materials, water and energy within a company production, building on its own specific needs and internal capacities. Starting with that each company management outlines a policy with objectives related to resource efficiency, internal TEST teams with members from various departments are formed to collect input-output data at the company system level to form a boundary for baseline, benchmarking and analysis.
From December 2020 until January 2021 the 15 demonstration companies in Jordan will undertake a Material Flow Cost Analysis to identify the priority flows and focus areas in their production processes. This will support the preparation for developing an action plan with options that can improve the efficiency in the company production.
The workshops are part of the technical assistance component of the MED TEST III project in Jordan, carried out by the Royal Scientific Society, which anticipates demonstrating the business case for a resource efficient production under the conditions of Jordanian industries. Following a twofold strategy, the project also trains local service providers on the tools of the TEST methodology. As part of their on-the-job training, the locally trained service providers will assist the demonstration companies in the process of assessing the best options to save resources and costs in their businesses.
