Title Introduction of High Efficiency Electrolyzer in Chlor-Alkali Processing Plant
Summaries GHG emission reduction measures : Installing ion-exchange membrane electrolyzer, which reduces electricity resistance of the electrolyzer unit and achieves electricity consumption reduction in the chlor-alkali process. This methodology applies to the project that aims for saving energy by introducing high efficiency electrolyzer for the target factory, commercial facilities etc. in Saudi Arabia.
Calculation of reference emissions : Reference emissions are GHG emissions from using reference electrolyzer, calculated with power consumption of project electrolyzer, ratio of the initial guarantee of specific electricity consumptions of reference/project electrolyzers and CO2 emission factor for electricity consumed. The initial guarantee of the electrolyzer has to be satisfied at the new plant, whose membranes, electrodes and other elements are in the condition that has not used and shows the best performance.
Calculation of project emissions : Project emissions are GHG emissions from using project electrolyzer, calculated with electricity consumption of project electrolyzer and CO2 emission factor for electricity consumed.
Monitoring parameters : Electricity consumption of project electrolyzer; The amount of fuel consumed and/or the amount of electricity generated by captive power, where applicable.
