Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

In this paper the energy conservation problem is formulated as it is viewed from the chemical industry and alternative solutions for the synthesis of heat recovery networks are presented. These methods are evaluated and compared to each other. Specialized applications demonstrate the economic advantages and technical complications resulting from heat recovery networks. Various methods to overcome the controllability and operability problems are also discussed. Areas for future contributions and developments are pointed out and the future of energy integration to the design of chemical plants is evaluated and roughly outlined.
