  Title: Energy integration methodology for retrofit design

  Advisors: Cong-Toan TRAN (cong-toan.tran@mines-paristech.fr),

  Assaad ZOUGHAIB (assaad.zoughaib@mines-paristech.fr)

  Short description of possible research topics for a PhD:

  One of the biggest challenges for humanity nowadays is to reduce greenhouse gases emissions via an efficient utilization of energy. Energy integration methodologies have been developed to improve energy efficiencyof industrial processes. These methodologies aim to match heating requirements of some process streams and cooling requirements of other streams. At present, these methods have been successfully applied to design a new heat exchanger network for many case studies, but the applications for the retrofit design of an existing process is very limited due to the lack of a systematic methodology. While the reduction of energy consumption of existing processespresents a high potential, up to 40 %. In addition, retrofitting a process is sometime necessary for many other objectives, such as capacity increase or changing product specifications.

  The thesis aims to develop a general methodology dedicated to the retrofit design.The method will be based on the process modeling techniques and the topology representation, which are absolutely necessary to study an existing process and to evaluate energy saving of a retrofit design. Using the superstructure approaches, different process flow diagrams could be identified to match the product specifications of the process. Optimization techniques will be applied to find out the best solutions according to the given objectives (energetic or economic or both). Pinch Analysis, a very popular methodology in the domain of energy integration, will be also considered, that allows to reduce the search space and to reach solutions within a reasonable calculation time. The developed methodology will be tested on a real case study concerning high energy-consuming processes, such as refinery or chemical processes.
