ENERGY RECOVERY
ENERGY RECOVERYMost processing energy enters and then leaves the process as energy, separate from the product. The energy enters as electricity, steam, fossil fuels, etc., and then leaves, released to the environment as heat, through “coolers,” hot combustion flue gases, waste heat, etc. Recovering heat to be used elsewhere in the process is important to increase process efficiency and minimize cost. Minimizing the total annualized costs for this flow of energy through the process is a complex engineering task in itself, separate from classic process design. Since these costs include the costs for getting energy into and out of the process, they should be evaluated together, as elements integrated within a larger system. Such a holistic system evaluation impacts how the overall project will be desig…
