• How to assess carbon footprint for the full lifecycle of a gas turbine
  • An externally reviewed 2020 study by two Baker Hughes engineers and four University of Perugia researchers established a much-needed method of assessing the full "cradle-to-gate" impact of a turbine's manufacturing cycle
  • Our NovaLT™12 and 16 turbines were found to have, on average, 50% lower manufacturing emissions in addition to their 10% lower emissions during operation (versus our previous PGT10 technology of the same size)

Case study details

Our commitment to protect the environment has never been more important. Between 2017 and 2020, Baker Hughes collaborated with the University of Perugia to assess the main drivers of carbon emissions in the lifecycle of a gas turbine.

The resulting methodology enables easy and fast eco-design evaluations and supports sustainable design assessments. Preliminary analysis of the entire processes involved in gas turbine design and production, as well as testing and commissioning phases, were performed to evaluate which factors have the most effect on the carbon footprint of each process.
