    Interplant Resource Integration: Optimization and Allocation presents an introduction to the planning and implementation methods for interplant resource integration. The analytic tools provided in this book can be used for the tasks of formulating mathematical programming model(s) to maximize the achievable overall savings and also for devising the "fair" distribution scheme(s) to allocate individual financial benefits among the participating plants.

    • Offers tools for gaining economic benefit and environmental friendliness
    • Presents methods for realistically feasible solutions
    • Provides concrete mathematical modeling procedures
    • Familiarizes readers with various network synthesis approaches and shows alternative viewpoints that can be adopted to model the interactions of participating members in an interplant resource integration scheme

    Aimed at chemical engineers, process engineers, industrial chemists, mechanical engineers in the fields of chemical processing and plant engineering.

    Introduction (CTC). Multi-Plant HEN Designs for Continuous Processes. Indirect HEN Designs for Batch Processes.
