This study has dealt with evaluation of existing power generation and the amount of power for conditioning by gas produced with oil burnt in flares around Ahvaz. There are rapid methods for generating power and coolness. Economic savings resulting from the project and the benefits to the environment of the region receive attention. Ahvaz 1 has four big flares and it produces about 65 megawatts electricity. It is inspired by solar tower power plant. It produces coolness using the heat coming

After being implemented, it can be exported as engineering services to oil countries in the region. In the vicinity of this project, glass-roofed parks, exhibition, recreational and cultural centers and tourism centers can be built.
