A framework for waste heat energy recovery within manufacturing
thesisposted on 09.06.2016 by Yang Luo
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
One third of energy consumption is attributed to the industrial sector, with as much as half ultimately wasted as heat. Consequently, research has focused on providing a framework for waste heat energy recovery within manufacturing. A decision support tool is hence developed based on the framework to deliver a streamlined and optimised heat recovery strategy. Substantial improvement in plant energy efficiency together with financial and environmental benefit from heat recovery has been demonstrated.
