Process intensification: SEWGS case

In process intensification, several unit operations are combined aiming at specific cost reduction. A typical example is combining an equilibrium limited conversion reaction with the downstream separation into a single unit operation. Cost reductions can thus result from an increase in production...[more]

LOCOSTO: improving industrial energy efficiency by storage of heat

Storing heat to use this heat at a later time is a good way to save energy. Industrial batch processes for example can benefit from heat storage by heating a new batch with the waste heat of the previous batch. Although heat storage technology is known for a very long time, industrial applications...[more]
