Thermodynamics and sustainable development

Abstract

It is the objective of this thesis to demonstrate exergy analysis as a powerful instrument to obtain sustainable development. An important aspect of sustainable development is the minimisation of irreversibilities caused by the use of non-renewables. In order to limit the scope of this thesis sustainable development associated with production is considered only. The demonstration cases from practice are selected on four levels: components from process units, process units, complete production processes and, finally, products from production processes. This approach requires life cycle analysis aspects to be included in the exergy analysis.
