Plant engineers and energy project leaders
Process integration is a powerful approach for improving the energy efficiency of large and complex industrial facilities with energy-intensive systems. Through a comprehensive and systematic approach, process integration techniques analyze a plant or process as a whole, rather than solely considering individual equipment items or energy systems independently. This thorough overview thus allows determining the best strategies for an efficient energy and resource use.
Energy Savings of up to 30%
Process integration can be used to improve plant profitability by reducing energy-related operating costs, as well as to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and rejected effluents. It can typically lead to substantial energy savings ranging from 10 to 30% – and sometimes even more – with payback periods of 1 to 3 years.
