Energy Savings Opportunities
In a previous white paper, "The First Step" we provided an overview of three methods to improve energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions in refineries and petrochemical plants:
1) operational improvements to optimize the process
2) recovering more heat by improving the heat integration of the process and
3) adopting new process technology that fundamentally improves the efficiency of the process design and operation.
This whitepaper will outline low-cost operational improvements that use process condition and control improvements to unlock hidden energy saving opportunities.
