Waste heat has been described as the energy disposed of or given off to the environment. This waste energy, in many cases, arises from process operations in the industry. Heat utilisation has shown to be of great effect when considering process requirements, costs, and unit-specific operation in terms of operating parameters. For this reason, the need to understand and utilize the waste heat becomes imminent. This report discusses the various scientific reviews on heat recovery and utilization applicable to process industries. This study is limited to heat utilization review and its impact on process industries. It will help industries position strategies and build top-notch technologies that will help improve existing process systems.
