Abstract
The paper is concerned with heat integration of a conceptual hydrogen plant connected with a sugar factory. The sugar factory serves as a source of sucrose-containing thick juice for the hydrogen plant, where this feedstock is processed to hydrogen. Moreover, this connection gives an opportunity to utilize waste heat from the sugar factory. Hydrogen is produced by two-stage fermentation, that is, thermophilic fermentation followed by photofermentation. The gas mixture obtained in the two process stages is supplied to the gas separation system, composed of absorbing and stripping columns for circulating amine solution, to separate hydrogen from carbon dioxide. Using Pinch Technology and considering sugar factory with its CHP plant as an... (More)
