Emissions from the Combustion of Natural Gas - Natural gas is the cleanest of all the fossil fuels, as evidenced in the Environmental Protection Agency’s data comparisons in the chart below, which is still current as of 2010. Composed primarily of methane, the main products of the combustion of natural gas are carbon dioxide and water vapor, the same compounds we exhale when we breathe. Coal and oil are composed of much more complex molecules, with a higher carbon ratio and higher nitrogen and sulfur contents. This means that when combusted, coal and oil release higher levels of harmful emissions, including a higher ratio of carbon emissions, nitrogen oxides (NOx), and sulfur dioxide (SO2). Coal and fuel oil also release ash particles into the environment, substances that do not burn but instead are carried into the atmosphere and contribute to pollution. The combustion of natural gas, on the other hand, releases very small amounts of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides, virtually no ash or particulate matter, and lower levels of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and other reactive hydrocarbons.
Heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) by Alstom are designed to deliver high performance and crucial efficiencies in gas power plants – all at a cost effective price.
The power generation market demands that combined cycle power plants increase capacity at a lower cost, operate efficiently and cycle more often to meet with strict environmental controls. Alstom’s automation and control solutions manage the energy dispatched by your gas power plant, from fuel supply and plant performance to emission monitoring and grid connections for maximum flexibility. 9
The ALSPA速 Series 6 product line provides a consistent technology from low-level controls to high level asset management dashboard and optimization tools. This Alstom automation and control solution ensures data consistency and an ideal platform for power operators in plant and fleet management requiring remote feature centralization.
