Process furnace

Best Available Techniques (BAT) Reference Document for Large Combustion Plants, Published by the European Union in 2017 defines process furnaces or heaters as:

‘As a consequence of the application of good energy recovery practices, process heaters/furnaces may have an associated steam/electricity generation system.
This is considered to be an integral design feature of the process heater/furnace
that cannot be considered in isolation.’
