Tokyo Gas developed first hydrogen fired gas cogeneration system
Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd. and Sunray Reinetsu Co., Ltd., a group company of Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. have jointly developed Japan’s first hydrogen-fired gas turbine cogeneration system reheating burner. This product is sold by Sunray Reinetsu.
The gas turbine cogeneration system with a reheating system can increase the amount of steam generated in the waste heat boiler by further heating the exhaust gas of the gas turbine cogeneration system. .
By combining this product with a gas turbine that generates power using 100% hydrogen, it will realize zero CO2 emissions from the entire gas turbine cogeneration system, contributing to the carbon neutralization of the industrial sector.
Hydrogen does not generate CO 2 when burned, so it is one of the energy options for achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, as advocated by the government. On the other hand, there are issues such as an increase in NOx emissions due to its different characteristics as a gas from natural gas (methane).
This product uses Tokyo Gas’s combustion technology and Sunray Reinetsu’s reheating technology for gas cogeneration to solve issues such as reducing NOx emissions to the same level as city gas, and has been commercialized.
Tokyo Gas and Sunray Refrigeration will contribute to the realization of a carbon-neutral society through the development of technologies for utilizing hydrogen, an energy that contributes to decarbonization.
