Emissions Analysis


In order to calculate the environmental benefit of using marine turbines instead of conventional thermal power stations we looked at the emission saving that we would make by generating electricity from this renewable source. We analysed the emission data per kW hour from several UK sources and obtained an average value for CO2, NOX and SOX emitted when burning coal and natural gas. In addition we also calculated a value for the amount of solid material released during coal combustion.
