Emission factors of CO2, SO2 and NOx emitted from Irans thermal power plants are fully covered in this paper. To start with, emission factors of flue gases were calculated for fifty thermal power plants with the total installed capacity of 34,863 MW regard to the power plants operation characteristics including generation capacity, fuel type and amount and the corresponding alterations, stack specifications, analysis of flue gases and physical details of combustion gases in terms of gKWh-1. This factor was calculated as 640, 2.75 and 2.4 gKWh-1 for CO2, SO2 and NOx respectively. To achieve an accurate comparison, these values were compared with their alternatives in North American countries. According to this comparison, emission factor of flue gases emitted from Irans thermal power plants will experience an intensive decline if renewable, hydroelectric and nuclear types of energy are more used, power plants efficiency is increased and continuous emission monitoring systems and power plant pollution reduction systems are utilized.
Keywords: Emission Factor, Flue Gases, Fossil, Fuel Power Plants, Power Plant Operation Characteristics
