Abstract : The objective of this work is to: Identify opportunities for using waste energy recovery technologies at AMC sites. Approach: Two AMC sites were selected for study based on a review of documents describing their energy use patterns. A preliminary list of heat recovery applications suitable for more detailed analyses was compiled for each site during initial visits. Next, more comprehensive process energy studies were conducted at the two plants to determine actual operating conditions of the processes showing most promise for successful heat recovery applications. Cost estimates were developed for all systems to ensure that the economics would be favorable enough to warrant installation; this analysis considered the first cost of all major components, installation, and annual operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.
