Energy Saving through Pinch Technology and Process Integration

Two-Day Programme on

Energy Saving through
Pinch Technology and Process Integration

5th & 6th October 2006


While oil prices continue to climb, energy conservation remains the prime concern for many process industries. The challenge every process engineer is faced with is to seek answers to questions related to their process energy patterns. A few of the frequently asked questions are:

  1. Are the existing processes as energy efficient as they should be?

  2. How can new projects be evaluated with respect to their energy requirements?

  3. What changes can be made to increase the energy efficiency without incurring any cost?

  4. What investments can be made to improve energy efficiency?

  5. What is the most appropriate utility mix for the process?

  6. How to put energy efficiency and other targets like reducing emissions, increasing plant capacities, improve product qualities etc, into a one coherent strategic plan for the overall site?
All of these questions and more can be answered with a full understanding of Pinch Technology and an awareness of the available tools for applying it in a practical way.


This 2 day training programme aims to provide the basic knowledge of the concepts in pinch technology and how they been be applied to reduce energy and capital costs, increase capacity and reduce emissions.

  • Fundamentals of Pinch Technology

  • Basic Concepts of Pinch Analysis

  • Steps of Pinch Analysis

  • Benefits and Applications of Pinch Technology

  • Energy Conservation and Process Integration

  • Successful Case Studies

  • Senior consultants from National Productivity Council.
