Abstract: In environmental point of view, natural gas is the cleanest of the fossil fuels. The combustion of natural gas releases virtually no sulphur dioxide and ash or particulate matter, and very small amounts of nitrogen oxides. Natural gas emits 22% less carbon dioxide than oil and 40% less than coal. NOx is reduced by more than 90% and SOx by more than 95%. This paper will describes the effort of PT. PJB UP Gresik as the owner of the bigest steam power plant in Indonesia to reduce the CO2 emission by converting fuel oil to gas at existing steam power plant fuel system. In order to achive operating conditions that assure mass, energy and momentum balances, some plant modifications and new installation were performed in combustion system area. The effort was performed succesfully. The evidents were compare with the same powerplant in the world. In term of CO2 emission, PT. PJB UP Gressik lay at the best ten compared to others power plant performance in America. It is shown PT. PJB UP Gresik have been performing best green practice especially in reducing CO2 emmision in the steam power plant by utilize fuel gas.
