Waste Heat Recovery: Challenges & Opportunities for Energy Efficiency *Full*


Singapore is a small city-state without natural resources such as oil and natural gas and with very energy intensive industrial activity. A great potential of efficiency improvement lies in recovery of the wasted heat and thus replacing power, oil or natural gas used to fuel the processes.

As most industries use fossil fuels, heat recovery and improvement of energy efficiency will directly reduce the CO2 emission. Consequently, heat recovery projects can generate credits within the CDM and carbon trade programs. These credits are generated due to avoidance of use of fossil fuels as well as financial return on heat recovery projects.

Heat recovery can generate important financial cash flows, but due to the complexity of the equipment and recovery processes it is not always easy to implement these projects. For all energy efficiency projects, increased complexity demands more engineering efforts as well as adequate expertise and understanding of the technical fundamentals governing the heat recovery processes. Typical problems in heat recovery are corrosion, clogging, emissions and fouling; it is essential to deal with those and solve them in a sustainable way.

Maintenance and qualitative operating of the equipment is essential to avoid deterioration of the efficiency or early breakdown of machines. These aspects have to be dealt with during the design stage and organized at the start of the projects otherwise the return on investment will not be achieved.
