9780071799942: Products and Process Design: Sustainable Manufacturing

With a focus on chemical engineering process and product design profitability via the constraints of safety, security, and environmental preservation, this book serves as both a senior-level design text and professional reference.

Products and Process Design: Sustainable Manufacturing integrates the two major changes that have occurred in chemical design courses over the decades: process synthesis and product design and green chemistry. This is a textbook for seniors in chemical engineering design courses and a professional reference for working chemists and chemical engineers. Introduction of green engineering has ushered in a new perspective rapidly being embraced by companies globally. This book addresses this emerging topic, along with plant safety and security.

  • Relies on worked-examples to convey the concepts and applies concepts to solve real problems
  • End-of-chapter problems; 30-40 per chapter
  • Green engineering topics – renewable feedstocks, benign manufacturing, designing safer chemicals, green chemistry, pollution prevention, minimization of net energy and water consumption, small environmental footprints
  • Author has taught chemical engineering design for over 25 years
