In LNG regasification facilities, for exergy recovery during regasification, an option could be the productionof electric energy recovering the energy available as cold. The authors propose an innovative processwhich uses a cryogenic stream of LNG during regasification as a cold source in an improved CHP plant(combined heat and power). Considering the LNG regasification projects in progress all over the World,an appropriate design option could be based on a modular unit having a mean regasification capacityof 2 109 standard m3/yr.This paper deals with an outlook of LNG trading now expanding in the World and gives a concise state ofthe art with a review of technology seeming that proposed. Then an innovative CHP plant and results pertainingthe selection of working fluids, made with an optimization analysis, are presented.
