Do you know that CHP can reduce carbon emissions by up to 30%?
By supplying on-site energy at high levels of efficiency, CHP will contribute to Government objectives relating to the reduction of carbon dioxide and other emissions.
Any fuel-burning plant has to meet environmental standards set under current legislation, and this includes all CHP plants: in general, the larger the plant, the more its environmental performance will be regulated. Future targets on emissions and air quality will require all plants to demonstrate that they are achieving acceptable standards of performance. This, in turn, will normally reflect the techniques and equipment commercially available. Given correct design and operation, CHP plants will be capable of meeting the required standards of environmental performance.
