On 21 July 2018, as part of the project activities, METABUILD project arranged a small business forum on “Resource Efficient Cleaner Production (RECP) & its benefits for metal industries”. This event took place at Ramna Restaurent, Larmini Street, Wari, Dhaka.
Though METABUILD project team has been working in 18 metal sectors in Bangladesh for last two years, they did not start working in the electrical bulb industries. So, this event was arranged for the Bulb Manufacturers Association (BUSL) of BD in order to spread the awareness regarding energy & resource efficiency.
Mr. Nazrul Islam, President, BUSL attended the forum as the chief guest. 46 company owners participated in this forum. Resource Efficient Cleaner Production (RECP) & its benefits for metal industries were explained during the event. Technical consultants of METABUILD explained various ways to gain energy efficiency. A discussion took place on the importance of using energy efficient lights.
At the end of the event, 24 companies signed the MoUs to join METABUILD. The President mentioned that BUSL has many potential member companies and they will be glad to receive the support from METABUILD.
