This book has been edited by Martine Poux, Patrick Cognet and Christophe Gourdon from the Laboratoire de Génie Chimique/ENSIACET, Toulouse. It presents an ensemble of methods and new chemical engineering routes that can be integrated in industrial processing for safer, more flexible, economical, and ecological production processes in the context of green and sustainable engineering.
Different methods for improving process performance are dealt with, including:
• Eco-design and process optimization by systemic approaches
• New technologies for intensification
• Radical change of industrial processes via the use of new media and new routes for chemical
These various methods are fully illustrated with examples and industrial cases, making this book application oriented.
Foreword. General introduction. Part 1: Tools for green process engineering. Part 2: Technologies and innovative methods for intensification. Part 3: A new generation of processes.
