Turbine Technology Advantages And Disadvantages

2327 Words10 Pages
Generation of electricity using turbine technology is very popular around the globe since most of the processes such as hydro energy are clean and renewable. Additionally, some do not pose a huge threat in human life and the environment. The traditional method of using turbine technology is very popular and wanted in many countries due to the economical cost of building and maintaining the generation plant. Additionally, the turbine technology is more efficient. This is because it can employ a number of fossil fuels, water, geothermal energy or wind to generate electricity. Hence, the country has a greater variety to choose from depending on the availability of the fossil fuel in the country. Thus, this gives any country an opportunity to open up as many electricity generation plants around the country where a certain source such fossil fuel, water, wind, solar or geothermal is available in abundance. However, changes in the human population and environmental changes. The turbine technology will be an inefficient source of energy. Since a large amount of power will be needed by the increasing population and the amount of fossil fuel is diminishing every single day due to its non-renewable/ non -recycle.

However, it is the most pollutant fossil fuel. Hence, many countries are abandoning it due its environmental concerns. Nevertheless, there is new technology is the market called ‘congestion. ' This is reusing the steam that was initially used to run the turbines. The factories are also using scrubbers that treat the waste product before they are released to the atmosphere. Additionally, all the fossil fuels emit toxic gases (such as carbon dioxide, sulfur oxide and nitrogen oxide), traces of toxic metals, ash and hot air into the environment. These gases contribute largely to the formation of acid rain and global warming (Sims et al.,
