The systems work according to the principle of power-heat-coupling, and convert natural gas into energy. The resulting heat is also used, so significantly less heat is lost. Up to 90 percent of the supplied primary use of energy and significant CO2 emissions.

The BMW plant in Landshut, Germany reduced its CO2 emissions thanks to the efficient CHP plant to 40,000 tons per year, with the help of conventional technology, these emissions would be inevitable.
