Keywords:   Recirculation of exhaust air, exergy analysis, energy analysis, grain dryer modeling

The potential for energy conservation by using the technique of exhaust air recirculation has been known for a few decades. The state-of-art knowledge, including available experimental data associated to drying with recirculation, is rather incomplete and does not allow proper engineering design.
