Energy integration study of the INEOS Phenol plant in Marl Germany, in line with ISO 50001 compliance. Determination of energy profiles, key performance indicators and improvement options for process integration in relation to their economic impact and legal requirements. Develop the methodology and associated tools (IPESE Osmose tool) to carry out (steam) energy audits on industrial sites, based on the energy audits criteria defined by the international standard ISO 50001, the European standard EN 16247 as well as national audit schemes and criteria.
- a site energy review: energy bill details and breakdown, material and energy balances of the site (unit based profiles via Pareto analysis), major consumers identification, adding water/steam balances where possible and accounting for third parties on black box level;
- an energy integration study (rough total site analysis): generating the site energy profile and substantiating non-binding recommendations on energy optimisation, integration opportunities, metering improvements and cost allocation per unit or plant where possible (together with both PhDs), building from available energy audits;
- internal benchmarking: based on a set of KPI (specific energy consumption) the goal is to establish the profile of the site and compare it with other/similar (INEOS) manufacturing sites.
