Waste Heat Recovery

Next Course Date: 18 - 20 July 2022

Time: 9am - 5pm

Mode of Delivery: Face-to-face


Course Summary

Waste heat recovery (WHR) is very important for both sustainability and profitability of process industries. It is even more important in Singapore because of very high industrial activity and lack of energy resources such as oil, natural gas and coal. WHR has great potential for reducing fresh fuel demand by recovering waste heat and reusing it. It can simultaneously reduce both the heating and cooling loads and hence reduce operating and/or capital costs. It will also reduce CO2 emissions.


Consequently, heat recovery projects can generate credits within the CRM and carbon trade programs, and hence improve financial return on WHR projects. WHR is equally beneficial for both Greenfield (i.e., in new plants) and Brownfield (in existing plants) projects.

Course Objective

This workshop will present a comprehensive and concise coverage of fundamentals, advanced topics and practical applications of waste heat recovery (WHR) in industrial processes. In this workshop, simple and effective WHR techniques will be illustrated, with suitable industrial examples, to help participants quickly identify, calculate and develop the heat recovery saving potentials within their processes. Key benefits/drivers of WHR projects will be illustrated; these are very useful to decision makers and engineers for developing successful WHR business cases.

Energy Efficient Engineering of Process Plant Pumping Systems

Next Course Date: 14 October 2021

Time: 9am - 5pm

Mode of Delivery: Face-to-face


Course Summary

Process plant pumps perform many important functions to maintain and control of process fluids. The physics and basic mechanics of pumps have not changed substantially in the last century. However, the state of the art in the application of pumps has improved dramatically in recent years. Even so, pumps are still often not well applied, and become common targets in revamp projects. Typically, revamp projects find that pump flow rates and delivery head are much more than the original design intent and that reducing flow rates to match load requirements or eliminating unnecessary pressure drops can bring about huge energy savings. 


In process plant pump systems, energy efficiency is an opportunity as energy recovery is not generally possible and thus process plants are better off saving energy in the first place than attempting to recover it at a later stage.


Although fully optimizing any design will require some effort after installation, the prevalence and magnitude of the savings that are commonly found in revamp projects raise the larger question: How much greater would the savings be if pumps were selected and applied optimally during the design phase? Process duty conditions decisions made during the design phase have enormous implications on Energy costs throughout the operating life of the process plant. In this background the proposed workshop titled "Energy Efficient Engineering of Process Plant Pumping Systems" attempts to provide the much needed clarity on the Process design aspects and Mechanical design aspects of Pumping Systems towards achieving the energy efficiency immediately after commissioning the Process Plant.

Understanding Pumps: A Systematic Approach

Next Course Date: 01 & 02 December 2022

Time: Day 1, 9am - 12pm & Day 2, 9am - 2pm

Mode of Delivery: Online


Course Summary

Pumps take up 20 - 30% in a typical split of energy usage of motor driven equipment for an industrial plant. Commercial buildings, with lower demand for processes, it is between 15 to 20%. The large amounts of energy used for pumping makes pump systems a major candidate for energy savings.

Pumping systems is usually less complicated when compared to process or chiller side optimisation.
