In Middle East countries like Iran; energy intensity is higher than the other regions due to low energy prices. One of the good motives towards energy efficiency is energy prices and because of this fact Iranian government wants increase the energy prices. One of the best technologies in energy efficiency is combined production of heat and power (CHP). In this paper the feasibility study of utilizing a CHP unit in an Iranian detergent factory has been described. The thermal and electrical energy uses in the factory has been measured According to the energy consumptions. The CHP system has been selected based on reciprocating gas engines. The feasibility study for the CHP system has been performed with different energy prices and environmental effect like reduction in CO2 emission has been analyzed. The CHP system can save 6;500 tons of CO2 per annum. In the feasibility studies rate of return method has been utilized. According to the energy prices scenarios; the rate of return would vary between 13% and 33%.
