Advanced Proficiency Masterclass in Waste Heat Recovery for Steam Systems

About the Programme:

The programme is structured to cover the approach, strategies as well as solutions to waste heat recovery. It will include an analysis of waste heat recovery technologies currently available in terms of their economic feasibility and recovery efficiency as well as consideration and examination of new methods for recovery of waste heat.

The programme will also introduce participants to the US Department of Energy Process Heating Assessment and Survey Tool (PHAST), Steam System Modeler, monitoring and measurement aspects, new technologies, life cycle costing, and specific action plans and strategies to achieve energy efficiency.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the approach to take in integrative design of waste heat recovery systems
  • Identify opportunities for waste heat recovery through effective heat balance analysis and pinch analysis of steam systems, energy distribution systems and energy conversion
  • Learn how to harness waste heat for industrial applications
  • Learn the operational issues to consider when integrating waste heat recovery systems into steam systems
  • Understand how to utilize waste heat recovery technologies (including limitations of current technologies) to design and manage a waste heat recovery system
  • Perform cost-benefit analysis for installation of waste heat process systems by technology type
  • Draw lessons from case studies on actual waste heat recovery projects
  • Develop an action plan to achieve energy efficiency improvements
  • Integrate continuous improvement into the operation of steam systems to achieve long-term energy efficiency targets

About the Trainer:
