Process Integration Approaches to Planning Carbon Management Networks provides a comprehensive treatment of carbon emissions pinch analysis (CEPA), covering the fundamentals as well as more advanced variants based on mathematical programming. A significant portion of the book is dedicated to case studies that provide a range of examples to demonstrate how CEPA can be applied to practical energy planning problems. Selected chapters also include electronic supplements (e.g., spreadsheet templates and software code) to aid the reader in applying these methods to new sets of data. This book is ideal for academic researchers and graduate students interested in carbon-constrained energy planning models and applications.
