A Global Approach for Improving Industrial Process Efficiency
CanmetENERGY promotes the use of a comprehensive approach to improve the energy efficiency of industrial processes at both the design and operational levels. A global approach consists in analyzing a process as a whole rather than considering individual operations independently. This method can be used to reduce energy consumption through increased heat recovery, maintaining energy performance over time or the optimal integration of new technologies.
Knowledge and Tools to Optimize Energy Use
In collaboration with its partners, CanmetENERGY develops and provides knowledge and tools to improve the energy efficiency of large industrial facilities with complex energy systems. These useful resources consist of state-of-the-art technologies and best practices for process design and operation. CanmetENERGY’s activities aim to:
- Reduce energy consumption with process integration and Pinch analysis
- Optimize system operation through data mining
- Improve the overall efficiency of complex industrial systems by researching and developing state-of-the-art technologies
