Reducing emissions and freshwater use
When operating in a steady state, HPC is designed to use by-product ethane and hydrogen to fuel power production in the cogeneration unit (CUB) to make up approximately 32 per cent of the operation’s total fuel usage, reducing the total carbon footprint by approximately 130,000 tonnes annually. Our CUB also uploads approximately 50 megawatts to the public grid annually. This power, produced with natural gas as a feedstock, provides low emissions power to the public grid in the region. Additionally, our use of air cooling instead of water cooling in the operation means we will use 80 per cent less make-up water.
