  • Innovative hybrid heat pump for dryer process integration

    Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Klemeš, Jiří Jaromír; Walmsley, Michael R.W.; Atkins, Martin John; Varbanov, Petar S. (The Italian Association of Chemical Engineering, 2017)
    This study aims to simulate and optimise a hybrid compression-absorption heat pump process for convective dryers considering Pinch design principles. With a greening electricity grid, heat pumps represent an effective ...
  • Networks for utilising the organic and dry fractions of municipal waste: P-graph approach

    Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Varbanov, Petar S.; Klemeš, Jiří Jaromír (AIDIC Servizi S.r.l., 2017)
    Minimising the demand for fossil fuels and the greenhouse gas footprints is of high priority for sustainable development. This is true for all societal aspects - including research and development. Waste-to-Energy (WtE) ...
  • Optimising energy recovery in hydrothermal liquefaction of radiata pine and Kraft mill black liquor

    Ong, Benjamin H.Y.; Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Atkins, Martin John; Walmsley, Michael R.W.; Neale, James R.; Varbanov, Petar S. (2018)
    The aim of this paper is to develop a heat exchanger network for hydrothermal liquefaction that is co-located with an existing Kraft pulp mill. Hydrothermal Liquefaction (HTL) is an energy-intensive process that operates ...
  • Relating bridge analysis for heat exchanger network retrofit identification to retrofit design

    Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Lal, Nathan S.; Varbanov, Petar S.; Klemeš, Jiří Jaromír (AIDIC Servizi S.r.l., 2018)
    The aim of the paper is to improve a recently developed automated HEN retrofit targeting method by linking the shapes of the Exchanger Shifted Composite Curve (ESCC) and Exchanger Grand Composite Curve (EGCC) to the required ...
  • Total site heat integration of multi-effect evaporators with vapour recompression for older kraft mills

    Walmsley, Timothy Gordon; Atkins, Martin John; Ong, Benjamin H.Y.; Klemeš, Jiří Jaromír; Walmsley, Michael R.W.; Varbanov, Petar S. (AIDIC (Italian Association of Chemical Engineering), 2017)
    This paper aims to apply Total Site Heat Integration (TSHI) to appropriately integrate Mechanical and Thermal Vapour Recompression with multi-effect evaporators at older Kraft Mills, to cause a step reduction in fossil ...
