Abstract

This chapter presents a new advancement in energy minimization and CO2 mitigation research. It describes the development of a combined technique to simultaneously synthesize energy recovery network and offers fuel switching options to satisfy CO2 emission reduction target using graphical and mathematical programming approaches. The approach is illustrated using petroleum refinery and palm oil refining process as the case study. The application of this technique yields significant CO2 emission reduction with short payback period with or without clean development mechanism (CDM).
