Consider A 100 Kw Fuel Cell Power Plant That Is Fueled With Natural Gas That Has

  1. Consider a 100 kW fuel cell power plant that is fueled with natural gas that has a lower heating value of 48.3 MJ/kg. Based on the lower heating value of the fuel, the power plant has a heat rate of 7500 Btu/kWhe. The fuel cell is a combined heat and power (CHP) plant which produces 200,000 Btu/h of heat energy at rated power. Assume natural gas has a carbon content of 75% (wt). How much CO2 is produced per MWhe if only the electrical power is used and the heat is discarded (kgCO2/MWhe)?
