Abstract

An energy plan of power production by substituting coal with palm briquette as fuel is proposed. A two-stage model is proposed, i.e., macro-stage for supply network design and micro-stage for process design. It is expected that the energy supply of Malaysia will be less dependent on the supply of fossil fuel - coal, which is imported into Malaysia, by substituting certain amount of coal with energy pack made of palm briquette and industrial waste oil. However, the incineration of industrial waste oil releases sulfurous and other hazardous emissions, which requires specific design of furnaces and installation of gaseous waste treatment processes. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the CHISA 2012 - 20th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering and PRES 2012 - 15th Conference PRES (Prague, Czech Republic 8/25-29/2012).
