Realistic steam prices are necessary for the efficient operation of a chemical production site, both to allocate realistic costs to the different businesses on the site and to provide a true economic incentive for energy conservation.
Pending legislation would require companies that make or use chemicals in the European Union to register those substances.

Here are guidelines for determining the scope of the control system, sizing the enclosure, and specifying the scrubber design.
To function properly at optimum capacity and efficiency, multi-pass trays must be designed so that the liquid and vapor flows are properly balanced. This article provides guidance on how to achieve that.
The more important question is “how much to engineer?” Use this technique to evaluate the level of engineering effort required, and justified, for a project.
