Applications in Design and Simulation of Sustainable Chemical Processes addresses the challenging applications in designing eco-friendly but efficient chemical processes, including recent advances in chemistry and catalysis that rely on renewable raw materials. Grounded in the fundamental knowledge of chemistry, thermodynamics, chemical reaction engineering and unit operations, this book is an indispensable resource for developing and designing innovating chemical processes by employing computer simulations as an efficient conceptual tool.

Targeted to graduate and post graduate students in chemical engineering, as well as to professionals, the book aims to advance their skills in process innovation and conceptual design. The work completes the book Integrated Design and Simulation of Chemical Processes by Elsevier (2014) authored by the same team.

  • Includes comprehensive case studies of innovative processes based on renewable raw materials
  • Outlines Process Systems Engineering approach with emphasis on systematic design methods
  • Employs steady-state and dynamic process simulation as problem analysis and flowsheet creation tool
  • Applies modern concepts, as process integration and intensification, for enhancing the sustainability

Dimian, Alexandre C.
Alexandre Dimian, PhD, is one of the pioneers in Europe in using computer-aided process engineering (CAPE) in industry and for teaching. He received his PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University "Politehnica” of Bucharest, and TU Hanover, and MSc in Computer Science from Ecole Centrale Paris. As professor in the Netherlands, he taught various process design and integration courses at graduate and postgraduate level from 1993 to 2011, at the University of Amsterdam and TU Eindhoven. He has a solid industrial experience working many years as consultant in CAPE applications with major companies in France and the Netherlands, namely in using computer simulation for design and operation of complex industrial processes. Professor Dimian is member of the Romanian Technical Academy and was awarded a Dr.H.C. title by the University "Politehnica” of Bucharest, where he is continuing the scientific activity.
Bildea, Costin Sorin
Costin S. Bildea, PhD, is professor at University "Politehnica” of Bucharest and invited professor at Delft University of Technology, teaching various courses in the field of Chemical Engineering. He holds MSc degrees in Chemical Engineering and Industrial Process Control, as well as a PhD title from University of Amsterdam. Professor Bildea is carrying on research activities in the field of integration between process design and process control, publishing more than 120 scientific papers and 2 books. In 2009, he received the prestigious "Nicolae Teclu" prize of Romanian Academy for his work in the field of design, control, and automation in industrial process engineering.
Kiss, Anton A.
Tony Kiss is a professor and chair in chemical engineering at The University of Manchester, and a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award holder. He has over a decade of industrial experience, working as Senior Project Manager and RD&I Specialist in Separation Technology at AkzoNobel - Research, Development & Innovation. Besides his industrial role, he has been appointed as part-time professor of Separation Technology at University of Twente (Sustainable Process Technology group). He holds a PhD title from University of Amsterdam, and he was also Post Doctoral research fellow at TU Delft and University of Amsterdam. During the past decade, he carried out many research & industrial projects, supervised graduation projects, published several textbooks, book chapters, and over 100 scientific articles. For the pioneering research work, he received in 2013 the Hoogewerff Jongerenprijs - a very prestigious award recognizing the most promising young scientist in The Netherlands. He also led his research team to receive in 2013 the AkzoNobel Innovation Excellence Award for the most successful industrial innovation. More information is available at: www.tonykiss.com
