    Advanced Modelling and Simulation in the Chemical and Biochemical Process Industry explores modelling and simulation of chemical and biochemical processes at industrial scale using a variety of approaches. Particular attention is devoted to simulations in different scales, which helps achieve a wide-spectrum and more efficient analysis of several problems ranging from the design of novel materials to the optimization of industrial processes as a function of the operating conditions. The book covers not only optimization with experimental data but also offers readers a thorough understanding and analysis of different parameters of a whole process stream.

     • Covers a wide range of advanced modelling and simulation of chemical technologies: ab-initio, atomistic Molecular Dynamics (MD), Lattice-Boltzmann (LB), Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and Finite Element (FEM).

    • Addresses issues associated with process control in different phases of the chemical industry.

    • Features modelling approaches that allow the design of novel processes/materials in a faster and more reliable way.

     This book will be of interest to researchers and advanced readers in chemical, biochemical, environmental, and materials engineering and industrial chemistry.
