WELCOME TO THE PRO-TEM NETWORK
The PRO-TEM Network was established in 2009 in alignment with the need of thermal energy management in the process industries. The main concern is how to improve and optimise the thermal energy efficiency in existing plants as well as the design of the future plants. The PRO-TEM Network has been trying to create opportunities to enable a close collaboration among members who work at academics, industry organisations, NGOs and the government bodies in the UK and beyond. It is hoped that the Network can contribute to create a low carbon future and a highly efficient use of energy in the process industries.
Special sessions at ICAE2013
Following ICAE2012, the Network will be running 3 special sessions on Thermal Energy Management at ICAE2013 (1-4, July Pretoria, South Africa). In total, 18 papers submitted by our network members have been accepted for oral presentation. The presentation slides will be made available on our website soon after the event. More information can be found on the conference's official website by selecting 'click for details...' below. See you at ICAE2013!
