Abstract [en]

As the population of the world increases, the demand for resources of different types will also grow. Water is one such resource. Pinch analysis, as a technique to optimise the utilisation of resources, had its origin in heat recovery and thereby the optimisation of fuel usage in the 1970s during the oil crisis. Since then, it has expanded to encompass a vast swathe of resources – both material and otherwise. Water pinch analysis is one offshoot of this tool (the implementation is labelled as pinch technology). This short article is a focused and selective review of recent publications having ‘pinch analysis’ in their titles and as their ‘core and gist’, during the period 2008-2018, and having water pinch analysis as either the sole focus or one of the foci.

Abstract [sv]

I takt med att världens befolkning ökar kommer efterfrågan på resurser av olika slag också att öka samtidigt. Vatten är en sådan resurs. Pinch-analys, som en teknik för att optimera användningen av resurser, hade sitt ursprung i värmeåtervinning och därmed optimering av bränsleförbrukningen under 1970-talet under oljekrisen. Sedan dess har den utvidgats till att omfatta en stor mängd resurser – både material och annat. Vatten pinch analys är en avknoppning av detta verktyg (genomförandet är märkt som pinch-teknik). Denna korta artikel är en fokuserad och selektiv översyn av de senaste publikationerna med "pinch analysis" i sina titlar och som deras "kärna”, under perioden 2008-2018, och med vatten pinch analys som antingen enda fokus eller en av de många.
