Preliminary results from current projects carried out within the JOULE Programme were presented at a European Seminar on "Improved Energy Efficiency in the Process Industries" in October 1990. Topics covered included the following: -heat exchangers: enhanced evaporation, shell and tube heat exchangers including distribution of fluids and fouling; -low energy separation processes: adsorption, melt-crystallisation and supercritical extraction; -chemical reactors: methanol synthesis and reactors with integral heat exchangers; -other unit operations: evaporators, glass-melting furnaces, cement kilns and baking ovens, dryers and packed columns and replacements for R12 in refrigeration; -energy and system process models: batch processes, simulation and control of transients and energy synthesis, and -development of advanced sensors.
