COGENERATION & TRIGENERATION:
Cogeneration is a process that begins using the gas obtained from various sources to power the gas engine via a clutch drives the generator to produce electricity and a medium that is heated via a heat exchanger delivers heat energy. Greenhouses for food today are increasingly using CO2 fertilization which requires carbon dioxide which can be obtained from the exhaust gas of the engine. Trigeneration is the process of getting electricity, heat and cooling energy while using fossil fuels, chemical energy or solar energy as a primary source.
