Improving heat recovery

Utilizing quench water energy at an European ethylene plant. Global warming is of major concern today. There is increasing pressure on industry to reduce both energy usage and the associated CO2 emissions. An important and profitable action that industry can take is to recover more process energy and thus improve the efficient use of that energy.

Where size really counts

Today, many industries are asking themselves how they can contribute to a better environment by reducing CO2 emissions, while remaining efficient and cost competitive. One solution, where feasible, is to install compact heat exchangers instead shell-and-tube heat exchangers.
