Abstract:   (16393 Views)
There are no power generation systems without environmental impacts. Environmental impacts are in all stages of power generation process including resource extraction, facilities production, material transportation, power use and waste disposal. Some of the environmental impacts are air pollution (pollutant emissions like PM-10, SO2, NOx, CO, toxic pollutants such as Hg and etc.), greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, land use, impact on ecosystems (fauna and flora) and impact on human health. Life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology could characterize environmental impacts in all stages of life cycle of power generation. Different power generation systems could be comprised by LCA too. Considering the importance of GHG emission and climate change, this paper attempts to comprise GHG emissions in life cycle of different kinds of power plants (including fossil fuels power plants, nuclear power plants, photovoltaic power plants, wind power plants, hydropower and biomass power plants).
Keywords: life cycle assessment (LCA), climate change, greenhouse gases, power plants
