Abstract In this paper, a new superstructure for heat integration of an eco-industrial park is proposed. Intra and inter-plant heat exchange for the process streams is allowed. For a proper reuse of the waste heat at low temperature, a set of organic Rankine cycles (ORCs) can be integrated inside the eco-industrial park. This way, the proposed superstructure allows proper heat integration to reduce the use of external cooling and heating utilities as well as the consumption of external electric… CONTINUE READING
