The Concept Chemical processing should form part of a sustainable industrial activity. For chemical processing, this means that processes should use raw materials as efficiently as is economic and practicable, both to prevent the production of waste that can be environmentally harmful and to preserve the reserves of raw materials as much as possible. Processes should use as little energy as economic and practicable, both to prevent the build-up of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels and to preserve reserves of fossil fuels. Water must also be consumed in sustainable quantities. Aqueous and atmospheric emissions must not be environmentally harmful, and solid waste to landfill must be avoided. Finally, all aspects of chemical processing must feature good health and safety practice.
The Book is intended to be a textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students of chemical engineering, and to be a practical guide for practicing process designers and chemical engineers and applied chemists working in process development.
Chemical Process Design and Integration deals in detail with the design and integration of chemical processes, emphasizing the conceptual issues. Chemical process design requires the selection of a series of processing steps and their integration to form a complete manufacturing system. The text emphasizes both the design and selection of the steps as individual operations and their integration. The design of utility systems has been dealt with in the text so that the interactions between processes and the utility system and interactions between different processes through the utility system can be exploited to maximize the performanceof the site as a whole. Chemical Process Design and Integration offers:
?? A combination of comprehensive textbook and practical guide
?? A wide range of process technologies
?? Details of the latest process integration design methods
?? Emphasizes sustainable process development
?? A practical guide to clean process technology
?? Comprehensive coverage of the design of energy and water systems
?? A guide to the inclusion of inherent safety in chemical process design
?? Large number of worked examples and class exercises
