Description

Applications in Design and Simulation of Sustainable Chemical Processes addresses the challenging applications in designing eco-friendly but efficient chemical processes, including recent advances in chemistry and catalysis that rely on renewable raw materials. Grounded in the fundamental knowledge of chemistry, thermodynamics, chemical reaction engineering, and unit operations, this book is an indispensable resource for developing and designing innovating chemical processes by employing computer simulations as an efficient conceptual tool.

Targeted to graduate and postgraduate students in chemical engineering, as well as to professionals, the book aims to advance their skills in process innovation and conceptual design. The work completes the book Integrated Design and Simulation of Chemical Processes by Elsevier (2014) authored by the same team.

Key Features

  • Includes comprehensive case studies of relevant industrial processes
  • Outlines alternative manufacturing processes with emphasis on biomass
  • Uses process simulation as analysis and innovation tool
  • Follows health-safety-environment (HSE) performance as key objective
  • Outlines Process Intensification (PI) Techniques for designing eco-efficient chemical processes

Readership

Graduate and postgraduate students in chemical engineering (specifically conceptual process design and plant design projects for students aiming for an MSc degree in chemical engineering); research and developments students of new technologies; professional engineers in continuous training courses; self-education

About the Author

Alexandre Dimian

Alexandre Dimian, PhD, is one of the pioneers in Europe in using computer-aided process engineering (CAPE) in industry and for teaching. He received his PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University “Politehnica” of Bucharest, and TU Hanover, and MSc in Computer Science from Ecole Centrale Paris. As professor in the Netherlands, he taught various process design and integration courses at graduate and postgraduate level from 1993 to 2011, at the University of Amsterdam and TU Eindhoven. He has a solid industrial experience working many years as consultant in CAPE applications with major companies in France and the Netherlands, namely in using computer simulation for design and operation of complex industrial processes. Professor Dimian is member of the Romanian Technical Academy and was awarded a Dr.H.C. title by the University “Politehnica” of Bucharest, where he is continuing the scientific activity.
