Successful application of process integration in industry


During this 3-day intensive course the outcome for the participants will be a better understanding of how to develop, apply and implement Process Integration (PI) for different systems. 

PI represents an important branch of process engineering, referring to the system-oriented, thermodynamics-based and integrated approaches to the analysis, synthesis and retrofit of process plants. PI encompasses a wide range of tools and approaches with the objective to optimize multiple processes or industries from a system perspective to achieve the most efficient ways in order to reduce costs and improve energy- and material efficiency.

The course covers theoretical and practical aspects of PI, the tools and methods available, and how these can be applied. Also the issues and barriers to facilitate implementation of process integration including presentation and acceptance of results, corporate structural barriers, etc. will be emphasized. Presentations will be given by European experts including researchers from Swerea MEFOS. Project assignments will be given, including a webinar presentation and discussions with selected experts. Time will be set aside for group work and discussions to encourage interaction between participants.

The course is primarily aimed for industry-based engineers, MSc, or scientists including PhD students and related stakeholders (academic, government, institutes) with an interest in the field of metals processing and mining industries.
