Mechanical vapour recompression (MVR) can improve energy efficiency in process plants and offers possibilities for integrating renewable electricity and demand side management, writes Egbert Klop
Steam recompression is an economically and energetically attractive technique. Steam is still a major energy carrier in all branches of the chemical industry. It can be used at several pressure and temperature levels. High-pressure steam is used to drive turbines while low-pressure steam delivers process heating.
