Process Integration: Pinch Analysis and Mathematical Programming – Directions for Future Development Jiří Jaromír Klemeš & Petar Varbanov Numerous studies have been performed process systems engineering field for improving the efficiency of supplying and using energy, water and other resources and consequently for reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases, volatile organic compounds and other pollutants, accumulating a significant body of methods, applications and results.It has become apparent that the resource inputs and effluents of industrial processes and the other units including the business centres, civic objects and even agricultural plants can and are often connected with each other. Most industrial plants and the other units throughout the world still use more energy and water than necessary, they are proven cases in the range 20 – 30 %, emitting too large volumes of Greenhouse Gases and other pollutants. Water-saving measures and the reuse of water may reduce groundwater consumption by as much as 25 – 30 %. Usually reducing resource consumption is achieved by increasing internal recycling and the reuse of energy and material streams. Projects for improving process resource efficiencies can be very beneficial and also potentially improve the public perception of the companies. Motivating, launching and carrying out such projects, …
