Carbon Dioxide Emission Analysis of Chilled Water Production by Using Gas Turbine Exhaust Heat

Adzuieen Nordin and Mohd Amin Abd Majid
Abstract—Carbon dioxide from exhaust heat emission is one of the major contributorsto the environmental pollutant in power generation plants. This problem could be addressed if the emitted exhaust heat is recovered. In cogeneration plant, the exhaust heat from the gas turbine is used to generate steam usingHeat Recovery Steam Generator. The steam from Heat Recovery Steam Generator is then used for chilled water generation in Steam Absorption Chillers by absorption process. This study analyzed the total estimated amount of CO2 released to the environment due to chilled water production by using gas turbine exhaust heat. University Teknologi PetronasMalaysia cogeneration system is used as a case study. The energy balance principlewas adopted for the analysis. Results indicate that approximately 44% of CO2is avoided from being released to the environment by this process.

Index Terms—Absorption process, carbon dioxide emission, cogeneration and exhaust heat.
