This project is concerned with the heat integration of batch processes. A former project developed Pinch Analysis based procedures (PinchBatch) for the supertargeting of batch processes, as well as for the design and optimization of indirect heat recovery using intermediate heat storage. The performances of these procedures were demonstrated using simple example problems; energetic and economic benefits of heat storages were highlighted. However, the design of the overall heat exchanger netword (HEN) is time consuming and requires skills. ...
