Controlling heat and trying to minimize the energy consumption in an industrial process can be challenging, whether this involves releasing heat or supplying cold streams that require heat. To help you navigate these issues, CIET has created this 2-day course where trainees are introduced to some tools that can help control heat as well as ensure that the energy-performance targets set for the process are met!

This course not only provides you with a helpful overview of the pinch analysis techniques for identifying practical and implementable energy-recovery opportunities but also discusses how heat use can be previewed and monitored by using a process-integration software tool.



  • To broaden technical knowledge in the area of process integration;
  • Identify projects for reducing the energy use and greenhouse gas emissions of industrial processes;
  • Provide the knowledge and tools to enable them to evaluate heat recovery projects;
  • Provide the knowledge to improve equipment operating conditions through a comprehensive approach that covers utility systems (or services) and the process as a whole;
  • Provide a good understanding of process integration principles, to use for energy analyses;
  • Demonstrate and actively use modules of the INTEGRATION software, developed by CanmetENERGY.


Please note that the INTEGRATION software as well as technical support for its users from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) are only available to Canadian engineers having attended the integration of industrial processes training course. Therefore, if you wish to obtain the software, you must first register and attend the training course.


Who should attend?

This course is ideal for the following clientele:

  • Engineers and professionals specializing in industrial energy efficiency;
  • Process design engineers;
  • Plant project managers;
  • Industrial energy consultants.

Training Schedule (click the image to see it in full screen)


There will be an optional but appreciated 45-min informal networking session at the end of the first day so you can get to know your fellow participants better; it starts after the Q&A at around 5:15 pm CDT.



The following topics will be covered:

  • Introduction to process energy integration;
  • Basic Pinch analysis concepts: determining the minimum energy consumption of a given process and the potential for heat recovery;
  • Analysis of heat exchanger networks and identification of heat exchanges that are sources of energy inefficiencies;
  • Process steam production, refrigeration, and air and gas compression systems: energy performance computation, waste heat assessment and analysis of energy recovery opportunities;
  • Global analysis including process equipment and utility systems;
  • Support programs for process integration and measures implementation Transfer and Persistence.


To allow participants to implement the newly-learned techniques, practical hands-on exercises and case studies are performed throughout the training course, using the INTEGRATION software developed by CanmetENERGY.


Please note that the INTEGRATION software as well as technical support for its users from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) are only available to Canadian engineers having attended the integration of industrial processes training course. Therefore, if you wish to obtain the software, you must first register and attend the training course.
