Applications of Energy and Water Process Integration Methodologies in Oil Refineries and Petrochemical Complexes

M. Hassan Panjeshahi,     University of Tehran, Iran


In this chapter, energy- and water-consuming systems in oil refining and petrochemical complexes are classified into three groups: heat and power systems, water and wastewater networks, and effluent treatment systems. In the first section, Heat and Power Integration methods for optimum design and retrofit in oil and petrochemical plants are demonstrated. The second section focuses on methods for water and wastewater minimisation. In the third section, the application of Process Integration in the design of energy-efficient effluent treatment systems for grass-roots ...
