Industry should reduce carbon footprint by combined cycle and cogeneration


Industrial energy efficiency opens up possibilities for lowering greenhouse gas emissions. It is critical to reduce the waste of our planet’s valuable natural resources. Industrial energy efficiency is regarded as a top priority for mitigating the effects of climate change. According to the World Economic Forum, the manufacturing and production sectors of our planet account for 30% of global carbon dioxide emissions. When industry makes the most of its energy-producing fuel, greenhouse gas emissions can be significantly reduced. This can occur when industry captures and converts unused heat into useful energy. , Combined heat and power systems are among the powers of energy efficiency. They reduce inefficiency through combined cycle and cogeneration processes. By capturing wasted heat, combined cycle technology generates useful energy.Cogeneration technology creates energy, as well as heat for oil and gas production processes.Besides cogeneration, recycling waste, diligent maintenance, local sourcing, and carbon capture are among ways to shrink the industry’s carbon footprint.Cogeneration harness unused heat from an industrial power plant’s exhaust stream. Rather than letting the heat escape into the atmosphere, the heat is captured, and put to effective use in the production process.Cogeneration systems are key to our strategy of achieving self-sufficiency in electrical power generation and processing heat for hydrocarbon production facilities.Industrial cogeneration technology aims to lower the energy intensity of operating plants.
