0*Fraction of Carnot efficiency of LN2 cold gas turbine * Carnot efficiency of LN2 at waste heat temp


Zeroed out for now. Assume all energy recovery is done through use of low temperature LN2 to cool incoming air to the liquefaction plant.

The trade-off is between the high value of peak load generation by highly dispatchable capacity afforded by cold gas turbines, vs higher baseload plant efficiency afforded by using the cold gas to more efficiently cool incoming air for oxygen separation via liquefaction.
