Green engineering is a methodology to improve the environment while positively improving the client’s bottom line.
Avoiding waste including energy during the process design is more cost effective than dealing with it later but it requires more process knowhow upfront.
- Recycling of “waste” requires tracking impurities more carefully
- Reducing scrubber size means minimizing emergency flows safely
- Reducing inventory means careful startup and shutdown design
- Heat recovery reduces energy consumption but also requires more accurate calculation of the heat recovery and the heat losses to properly size the trim heater
