Over the past two decades, significant advances have been made in treating chemical processes as integrated systems and to designing and operating industrial processes that achieve unity. Whether you are a process engineer , an industrial decision maker, or a researcher, this book will be an indispensable resource tool for assisting understanding of systematic process development, and enhancing process performance, and developing sustainable process designs. The book is also idea for use as a text in an upper level undergraduate or an introductory graduate course on process design and sustainability.
This ground breaking reference enhances and reconciles various process and sustainability objectives, such as cost effectiveness, yield enhancement, energy efficiency and pollution prevention. The detailed tools and applications within are written by one of the world's foremost process integration and design experts and will save you time and money.
- Contains state-of-the-art process integration approaches and applications including graphical, algebraic, and mathematical techniques
- Covers applications that include process economics, targeting for conservation of mass and energy, synthesis of innovative processes, retrofitting of existing systems, design and assessment of renewable energy systems, and in-process pollution prevention.
- Presents fundamentals and step-by-step procedures that can be applied to the design and optimization of new processes as well the retrofitting and operation of existing processes, as well as including numerous examples and case studies for a broad array of industrial systems and processes
