3 days EMT/ANAENERG-E
- Personnel from process, engineering, R&D departments of industrial plants in various industries (oil, gas, petrochemicals, chemicals, energy, paper, food, etc.).
- To provide comprehensive and applied knowledge of pinch analysis and how to improve energy efficiency in existing plants or new projects.
- To define the constraints and stakes of energy efficiency.
- To describe the main methods of energy analysis.
- To carry out an analysis of actual energy needs in an industrial unit and make recommendations.
- To suggest ways and means for reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
Ways and means
- Case studies based on actual examples from the industry.
- Illustration with an expert software developed by Linnhoff (SuperTarget).
Energy efficiency and context 0.5 day
- Definition of some evaluation indicators: energy intensity and efficiency, units and use.
- Motivations and constraints: energy dependence and regulation.
- Energy Management System: PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act) approach for ISO 50001 standard.
- Different approaches for energy efficiency: operation improvement, operating conditions optimization and other significant improvement solutions (pinch analysis, alternative technology, process design, best available techniques).
Pinch analysis and main rules 0.5 day
- Composite curves (hot and cold streams): building, description and interest.
- Pinch point: characteristics and help for solutions design.
- Key parameters: ΔTmin, integration ratio.
- Main rules: “cross pinch”, “plus or minus principle”, …
- Illustration through examples (heat exchanger network, selection of a compressor).
- Advantage of an expert software dedicated to energy analyses (ex: Super Target).
Methodology for energy analysis: main steps and case study 2 days
- Several case studies proposed and based on a methodology for energy analysis, adapted for industrial plants or new projects.
- At this step, trainees will be able to:
- characterize the energy needs and potential of a process
- design the most consuming pieces of equipment or steps
- define savings targets
- propose potential solutions and options
- simplify it in order to select most profitable and operational options.
Technology alternatives and other processes 0.25 day
- Other processes for achieving energy savings such as: extractive distillation, membranes, etc.
