This paper describes the process of the integration of a cogeneration plant in a plastics manufacturing complex, which is being expanded.

It presents the background against which the decision to proceed was made, the alternatives considered, and some of the techniques utilized to obtain management approval.

It also describes the specific aspects of the cogeneration facility, fuels, heat recovery systems for thermal oil and medium pressure steam, the balancing between energy production and utilization in the complex and the control system for the optimization of the facility.

Also some energy typical aspects of connecting the generator to the public grid will be addressed.
