Process Intensification in Heat and Mass Exchanger Networks

  • 2138 Accesses

Abstract

This chapter presents the use of process integration as a useful tool for intensifying processes. Particularly, mass and heat integration through the synthesis of mass and heat exchanger networks represent powerful tools that can be used for reducing the need of external agents such as fresh water and hot and cold utilities. Two optimization formulations are presented for mass and heat integration and the application to two case studies shows significant savings of external utilities.
