Application of exergy analysis for evaluation of CO 2 emission from operation of steam power unit Szargut proposed the algorithm for determination of the influence of irreversibility of components of thermal process on the emission of CO 2 (6). In the presented paper, basing on Szargut's proposal, the example of analysis of influence of operational parameters of coal fired power plant on the local increase of CO 2 emission is presented. The influence of operational parameters on the local exergy losses appearing in components of investigated power plant are simulating making use of the semi-empirical model of power plant.
