Ethylene Plant Technology - Energy Consumption and Optimization

The 21st Ethylene Producers Conference
2009 AIChE Spring Meeting
AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety
April 30, 2009 - 4:00am
Recent upward trends in energy costs combined with focus on emissions of greenhouse gases has led both engineering design companies and operating companies to consider methods to optimize energy consumption of olefins units, including emphasis on the pyrolysis furnaces, compressor/turbine sets, fractionation trains, etc. In this session various aspects of energy consumption are discussed as follows: Trends in plant energy consumption and design features which lead to reduced energy consumption; Benchmarking of olefins plant energy consumption by industry consultants; Daily monitoring of energy consumption and operational improvements in efficiency by operators; Methodology used to evaluate plant energy consumption and implement optimization projects, including case study(ies); Fouling, and its impact on energy.

Please Note: Ethylene Plant Technology - Energy Consumption and Optimization -- Spring Meeting 2009 includes the following recorded presentations:

· Welcoming Remarks

· Energy Incentives & Emission Reductions

· Continuous Energy Improvement at EU-1544

· Olefin Plant Energy Savings through Enhanced Automation

· Concluding Remarks
