For TERT Level 4 competency, participants need to demonstrate they have applied the TERT Level 1 to 3 knowledge to a real industrial case study. The participant needs to submit the project report. An evaluation committee will be appointed, which will vet the report in detail. There will be an evaluation session between the candidate and the evaluation committee. Upon satisfactory evaluation by the committee, the candidate will be awarded TERT Level 4.
Thermal Energy Recovery Technologist (TERT) is a professional training to develop more global experts in thermal energy recovery system based on Pinch Technology. Participants from this course are awarded competency certification based on the level of completion. Be among the pioneers and expert in thermal energy for processes, differentiating yourself from other energy auditors which focusses only on utility system audit. Pinch Technology is known to save energy between 15 to 90%, in comparison to utility audit which only saves up to 30%. The technology also commonly provides an attractive payback period of fewer than three years, as compared to the renewable energy system.
The industrial sector accounts for about one-third of the global energy consumption, with up to 50% of energy ultimately lost in the form of waste heat in hot exhaust gases, in cooling water, and on heated surfaces and products [US Department of Energy]. Recovery of thermal energy from waste heat presents the biggest cost-saving opportunity for energy efficiency improvement in the industrial sector.
If you are an energy manager, energy auditor, or energy service company.
If thermal energy is the leading energy cost in your manufacturing site.
Huge potential reduction in energy bills from thermal heat recovery.
Over 7000 successful process integration applications worldwide, including our project experiences have resulted in thermal energy savings of between 10 to 50%, and a payback period of less than 3 years. Our recent petroleum refinery retrofit project for example amassed an annual savings of USD 12 Million.
“We already have heat recovery systems in place. How could we benefit more?’’
Our experience shows that plant renovation, plant expansion, the addition of new product lines, consideration of total site, and area-wide integration could lead to ample energy cost-saving potentials.
