Jiří Jaromir Klemeš, University of Pannonia, Veszprém, Hungary
Process Integration (PI) is a powerful tool for designing and optimising processes in terms of efficiency in the use of energy, water and other resources, and also sustainability. It has been widely extended, and has become both a part of the curricula of most good engineering degree courses, as well as a routine tool for advanced design and optimisation in various industries. However, sometimes the comparative simplicity of the basic methodology is still misunderstood. Even PI has some potential pitfalls, related especially to the formulation of the problem and Data Extraction ...
