Description

This book will help industrial process innovators in research, development and commercial start-up to assess the risks of commercial-scale implementation and provide them with practical guidelines and methods to reduce the risks to acceptable levels.

The book can also be used in co-operation with industrial R&D people and academic researchers to shape open innovation programs and in education as a reference book for process innovation courses.

Key Features

  • Offers easily accessible, step-by-step, and concise guidelines for industrial process scale-up
  • Explains each stage of the innovation funnel: research, development, demonstration, commercial implementation for any process type and branch
  • Based on industrial experiences and practices, which reduces the risks of commercial scale implementation of new processes to acceptable levels and reduces cost and time of process innovation
  • Very clear, attractive layout, using text boxes that contain clarifying notes and additional information on specific topics, which makes it a quick reference of main subjects and additional information

Readership

Engineering students, researchers in chemical engineering, process developers, process designers, and R&D managers in process industries for Oil & Gas, Bulk/Fine Chemicals, Biotechnology, Biomass conversion, Ore processing, Metals, Food and Pharmaceuticals

Reviews

"…will help industrial process innovators in research, development and commercial start-up to assess the risks of commercial-scale implementation and provide them with practical guidelines and methods to reduce the risks to acceptable levels…has a very clear, attractive layout, using text boxes that contain clarifying notes and additional information on specific topics…" --Water Conditioning & Purification, February 2014

"…a case study on amine absorption processes for CO2…is the best written chapter of all." --Organic Process Research & Development Journal, April 2014

"Writing for practitioners of industrial process design, the author presents technical and organizational guidance on the steps of process scale-up, from idea to implementation. He focuses in particular on risk reduction and increasing the chances of success. In addition to guidelines and methods, he includes case examples drawn from his own career in process development at Shell, as well as from publications by authors also experienced in industrial process scale-up." --ProtoView.com, February 2014
