This new NYU CoGeneration plant is a super efficient generator that doubles the university's power output while greatly decreasing its pollutant emissions.
By switching to natural gas instead of oil, the NYU CoGeneration plant offers 23 percent less cabron emissions. The most important part of the new facility, however, is that it lets as little energy go to waste as possible. In addition to generating power from burning the gas itself, the heat from that process is used to power a turbine via steam in order to generate a second source of energy. On top of that, the wasted water from this turbine is then used to heat water for the entire campus.
