Process integration is a highly effective approach to improving the energy efficiency of large and complex industrial facilities with energy-intensive systems. A process integration study performs a comprehensive and systematic analysis of a plant or process as a whole, rather than considering individual operations and integral parts of an energy system separately. This thorough overview makes it possible to identify the best strategies for an efficient energy and resource use.
Energy Saving Products and Services for Industrial Facilities
CanmetENERGY promotes a site-wide approach for the identification of energy saving projects within industrial facilities. In collaboration with its partners, the Centre jointly provides knowledge and tools aimed at expanding the process integration market in Canada.
For this purpose, CanmetENERGY offers several products and services to engineers working in the field of industrial energy efficiency:
