Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

This project introduces a new 29 MW binary geothermal power plant with the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) system to the existing 120MW flash type geothermal power plant owned and operated by Bac-Man Geothermal Inc. The power plant is located at Palayan area of southern part of the Luzon island.

This binary geothermal power plant effectively utilizes exhaust hot water of low enthalpy from the existing flash geothermal power plant without producing hazardous gasses. This project replaces the grid power produced by fossil fuel with renewable energy and reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

72,200 tCO2/year

= reference CO2 emissions
 - project CO2 emissions

 ・Reference CO2 emissions
  = Quantity of the electricity generated by the project [MWh/year]
   x Emission factor [tCO2/MWh]

 ・Project CO2 emissions
  = 0 [tCO2/year]
