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.
- Addresses the fundamentals and applications of renewable energy process design for all major resources, including biomass, solar, wind, geothermal, waste and water
- Provides detailed case studies, step-by-step instructions, and guidance for each renewable energy technology
- Presents models and simulations for a wide variety of platforms, including state-of-the-art and open access platforms in addition to well-known commercial software
Senior undergraduate, Master and PhD students on renewable energy courses, early career researchers in renewable energy, chemical engineering, and process design. Scientists and engineers in the chemical, renewable and energy industries

Dr. Martín is an emerging leader in the field of Process Systems Engineering. Over the last ten years, Dr. Martín has provided workshops in universities and Technical centers of the largest companies and established a new line of research in one of the oldest Universities in the world, the University of Salamanca (Spain), which just celebrated its 800 years (1218-2018). His research accomplishments have been widely disseminated through over 100 peer-reviewed journal articles with an h-index of 29 and over 2300 citations (Scopus) and 2 edited textbooks (plus a 2nd Edition) and 2 monographs in the best editorials. His research results have been editorially highlighted in major media outlets all over the world and recognized with industrial and academic awards such as the “P&G award for his outstanding contributions to modelling and simulation” in 2009 or the “Rising star in Chemical Engineering” by Imperial College in 2016. He has been also nominated to the AIChE CAST Your investigator Award 2019 and 5 times to the ENI renewable award.
