An Introduction to CHP

There is increasing pressure on manufacturers to satisfy their demand for heat and electricity in a more cost-effective, carbon-clean and energy-efficient way.

Combined heat and power (CHP) or cogeneration can help deliver substantial financial savings, offer security of the supply, as well as making a significant contribution to reducing a business’s carbon footprint. However, when putting together a business case, manufacturers may also want to consider the merits of hire versus buy. This short CPD course will build up delegates’ understanding and knowledge of CHP and its benefits as well as taking them through the areas they need to consider when putting together a business case.

The course includes:

  • What is CHP?
  • Discuss technical, economic and environmental risks and benefits of CHP
  • Integration of CHP with renewable energy sources
  • Considerations for the business case
  • CHP incentives and support mechanisms
  • CAPEX versus OPEX

Who should attend?

  • Energy managers
  • Production Managers
  • Engineering managers

Vacuum Distillation Improvement

Refinery managers and engineers are under pressure to keep their petrochemical plant safe, productive and cost-effective, despite facing turnarounds and ageing equipment challenges.

We look at how to enhance process performances of vacuum distillation in petrochemical refineries through unconventional application of industrial refrigeration. Solutions described are engineered temporary cooling solutions, for hire, designed to improve the vacuum distillation profitability, that allow: unit de-bottlenecking, mitigation of deteriorated utilities conditions, support of operation while processing opportunity crudes.

This short course is aimed at managers and engineers who work within a petrochemical refinery and already have an intermediate knowledge of the associated processes.

The course includes:

Vacuum Distillation Unit (VDU) as part of the refinery backbone

Crude distillation unit (CDU) and VDU thermal integration

Scope of the VDU in the refining process

Vacuum generating equipment

Benefits of achieving deeper vacuum

Industrial refrigeration as a tool to improve vacuum

Opening a new class of projects and temporary revamps with refrigeration for hire

Who should attend?

Refinery process engineers

Refinery technology managers

Production managers

Production planners
