Heat exchanger network synthesis is one of the most extensively studied syntheses design problem in chemical engineering and is very important for the efficient energy recovery in production. in this paper suggests a new methodology for synthesis heat exchanger network for batch processes based on the relation between heat duty and time, the energy targets and the structure of the initial heat exchanger network can be used direct heat integration of batch streams. Two cases are solved to demonstrate the applicability of this approach.
