Effect of material flows on energy intensity in process ...

2006-9-1  1.. IntroductionMany process industries, such as alumina refining and steelmaking, are energy-intensive and have material flows, which have a strong effect on overall energy intensity of the final product (OEIF) , , .This problem, however, has only been recognised qualitatively due to the lack of a comparative data and quantitative analysis.
