Energy efficient plant operation is the most important research area in the industrial energy sector. The use of various methods such as pinch technology, reduction of frictional losses can reduce energy consumption to a considerable extent. The use of nonconventional energy is also becoming more and more important. Proper insulating material in construction and industrial sector can avoid energy losses to considerable extent. Current review summarizes research and studies on insulation.
Key words: Energy saving, heat losses, insulating materials.
