Description

The world faces significant challenges as population and consumption continue to grow while non-renewable fossil fuels and other raw materials are depleted at ever-increasing rates. Chemistry and Chemical Engineering for Sustainable Development: Best Practices and Research Directions is a technical approach that addresses these issues using green design and analysis. It brings together innovative research, new concepts, and novel developments in the application of new tools for chemical and materials engineers. It is an immensely research-oriented, comprehensive, and practical work focusing on the use of applied concepts to enhance the current trends and productivity in chemical engineering. It contains significant research, reporting new methodologies and important applications in the fields of chemical engineering as well as the latest coverage of chemical databases and the development of new methods and efficient approaches for chemists.
