Description

Sustainable Design for Renewable Processes: Principles and Case Studies covers the basic technologies to collect and process renewable resources and raw materials and transform them into useful products. Starting with basic principles on process analysis, integration and optimization that also addresses challenges, the book then discusses applied principles using a number of examples and case studies that cover biomass, waste, solar, water and wind as resources, along with a set of technologies including gasification, pyrolysis, hydrolysis, digestion, fermentation, solar thermal, solar photovoltaics, electrolysis, energy storage, etc. The book includes examples, exercises and models using Python, Julia, MATLAB, GAMS, EXCEL, CHEMCAD or ASPEN. This book shows students the challenges posed by renewable-based processes by presenting fundamentals, case studies and step-by-step analyses of renewable resources. Hence, this is an ideal and comprehensive reference for Masters and PhD students, engineers and designers.
