The growing human demands and urbanization along with rapid industrial development calls for efficient use of energy. The energy requirement is ever increasing. There is need to use the technologies and methods of heat exchange, manufacturing and chemical synthesis which consume minimum energy. The waste heat from flue gases and other hot streams can be utilized efficiently for preheating air or other process streams. The concept of regeneration and cogeneration can be applied to various refrigerator, heat exchanger and air conditioning system at domestic and industrial applications. The present review summarizes studies and research aimed at energy saving, recovery, cogeneration and regeneration.
Key words: energy, heat exchanger, area of heat transfer, recuperator, temperature.
