Abstract: This study is relevant to the efforts being made to support the Libyan state achieve its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions since Libya is one of the countries that ratified the Paris Agreement of 2015 and participated in the COP27 conference. Therefore, this research aims to estimate the amounts of CO2 emitted from Libyan power industry sector. The results presented in this research is based on real measured data that had been collected over long periods of time series by monitoring and control systems of the considered power plants. Thus, the presented here CO2 emission factors on different basis can be considered as an indicator to the environmental situation of the power industry sector of Libyan State. The methodology used in this study can be adopted to estimate other air pollutions emission factors in the power sector or even in other sectors. The results were also compared with emission inventories published by environmental agencies such as IPCC, EAA, EAI, and EEM, as well as the standards set by UNFCCC. This research sounds the alarm that the current environmental situation of the stations is much worse than all expectations, and therefore scientists and decision-makers must take immediate measures to reduce pollution in this sector.
