      The goalThe aim of the course is to establish procedures for the energy analysis, synthesis and optimization of chemical processes, in aspect of energy reduction, capital investment and operating costs minimization, for the existing technology, and the design of appropriate new products and processes. Possibility of new energy sources inclusion, better protection of the environment in terms of lower pollution and thermal impact on the environment will be considered.
      The outcomeAfter this course students will be able: (1) to analyze the energy efficiency of chemical and petrochemical processes, (2) to implement specialized packages for energy integration process, (3) to gain competence in making decisions related to heat integration in the process industry and the required competencies to work in scientific research team.
      Contents of lectures• Energy efficiency. ; • Integration of industrial plants - energy optimization of the plant – the optimal position of the reactor, distillation columns and heat exchangers ; • Application of mathematical methods for the integration of energy systems and processes ; • Analysis of the plant using the methodology of process streams composite curves, as well as utility power plant ; • Energy resources from an environmental point of view implementation. ; • Thermal pollution of environment ; • Thermo-economical process analysis.
      Contents of exercisesComputer simulations that follow the theoretical classes.
