Description

Computer aided process engineering (CAPE) plays a key design and operations role in the process industries. This conference features presentations by CAPE specialists and addresses strategic planning, supply chain issues and the increasingly important area of sustainability audits.

Experts collectively highlight the need for CAPE practitioners to embrace the three components of sustainable development: environmental, social and economic progress and the role of systematic and sophisticated CAPE tools in delivering these goals.

Key Features

  • Contributions from the international community of researchers and engineers using computing-based methods in process engineering
  • Review of the latest developments in process systems engineering
  • Emphasis on a systems approach in tackling industrial and societal grand challenges

Readership

Engineers, scientists, researchers, managers in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and biochemical industry involved in computer assisted process engineering
