Quad generation systems are some of the most advanced gas engine driven power plants in the world. Quad generation encompasses the features of a trigeneration system, with combined electricity, heat and cooling but in addition includes the recovery of carbon dioxide from the exhaust gas. This carbon dioxide is scrubbed and can be used in industrial process or offers the potential for carbon sequestration.

 

Benefits

 

  • Potential for low or zero carbon emissions

  • Reduced operational costs versus separate purchase of electricity, heat, cooling and carbon dioxide.

  • Uses all potential resources from gas utilization

  • Has a wide range of potential applications

 

Uses

 

Carbon dioxide can be used for a number of purposes including:

  • As a growth enhancer in plants

  • Food industry

  • Industrial processes

 

Carbon dioxide is recovered and scrubbed from gas engines and is widely used in the horticultural industry. Here the exhaust gas is scrubbed using the Codinox system and is pumped into the greenhouses. This carbon dioxide is used by the plants in photosynthesis and physically becomes part of the plant, while it is being removed from the atmosphere and therefore reduces carbon emissions. Alternatively carbon dioxide can be scrubbed and cleaned and then used as a substance for drinks and food manufacture, such as carbonation in the soft drinks industry, or other industrial processes. Quad generation provides the benefits of high efficiency generation, utilizing over 90% of the energy contained within the gas. It also utilizes carbon dioxide, a by-product of the combustion process to give the highest levels of environment performance and offers the potential for zero carbon emissions.
