Description

Towards Sustainable Chemical Processes describes a comprehensive framework for sustainability assessment, design and the processes optimization of chemical engineering. Beginning with the analysis and assessment in the early stage of chemical products’ initiating, this book focuses on the combination of science sustainability and process system engineering, involving mathematical models, industrial ecology, circular economy, energy planning, process integration and sustainability engineering.

All chapters throughout answered two fundamental questions in depth: (1) what tools and models are available to be used to assess and design sustainable chemical processes, (2) what the core theories and concepts are to get into the sustainable chemical process fields. Therefore, Towards Sustainable Chemical Processes is an indispensable guide for chemical engineers, researchers, students, practitioners and consultants in sustainability related area.

Key Features

  • Provides innovative, novel and comprehensive methods and models for sustainability assessment, design and optimization, and synthesis and integration of chemical engineering processes
  • Combines sustainability science with process system engineering
  • Integrates mathematical models, industrial ecology, circular economy, energy planning, process integration and sustainability engineering
  • Includes new case studies related to renewable energy, resource management, process synthesis and process integration
