In many industrial processes, heat is utilized. Generally, this heat will be supplied by combusting fossil fuels or using electricity in the form of inductive or resistance loads. While many argue the virtues of fossil fuels, or the advantages of electricity for their heating process, it remains an individual decision based on in-plant process requirements, environmental considerations, and economic factors.
