The costs and emissions in industry can be reduced by applying Process Integration (PI), which started as Heat Integration (HI) . HI has been extensively used in the processing (e.g. chemical, petrochemical, pulp and paper, food and drink) and power generating industries . It allows reducing the amount of external heating and cooling, together with the related cost and emissions.
