Furthermore, energy prices are a volatile factor which could again increase significantly in the future. This conference, organised by the Commission of the European Communities, aimed to make firms fully aware of the different opportunities for improving the efficiency of energy use, and reviewed the latest techniques and systems including: item - process integration, item - industrial plant--process control and optimisation, item - new techniques for low temperature and heat recovery, item - the energy management of utilities, item - sources of finance for energy efficiency investments.par This volume contains the papers presented at the conference and the round-table discussions.
