This document compiles the analysis of benefits and co-benefits expected from the evaluation of the conditions of emission of the pollutants BC, PM2.5, SO2 and CO among different combustion systems applied in the national brick sector.
The analysis of these benefits and co-benefits is based on an analysis of the environmental, social and economic conditions that can generate direct effects through the emission of these pollutants. In order to land this analysis to specific conditions of the brick sector, an example of possible application is chosen the case study of Los Mochuelos Mining Park, which given the availability of more information by the National Brick Inventory (CAEM, 2016), allows establishing possible results comparable to the conditions observed in the field for both environmental and economic indicators.
The conditions determined in the case study may be reproducible to other places in Colombia, as long as disaggregated information on costs at the operational level is available from the entrepreneurs to allow this analysis to be developed in a specific way. The valuation of profits is presented taking into account the following analysis:
