A method for calculating CO2 emissions from coal combustion at the TPP is developed on the basis of carbon emission factors, taking into account the heat value of coal and heat losses due to the presence of unburnt carbon in ash. The values of СО2 emissions at Ukrainian TPPs are obtained. Specific emissions of carbon dioxide are closely 1100 g СО2/kWh, which correlates with high specific consumption of fuel for electricity production at the TPP.
