Inspired by the leading authority in the field, the Centre for Process Systems Engineering at Imperial College London, this book includes theoretical developments, algorithms, methodologies and tools in process systems engineering and applications from the chemical, energy, molecular, biomedical and other areas. It spans a whole range of length scales seen in manufacturing industries, from molecular and nanoscale phenomena to enterprise-wide optimization and control. As such, this will appeal to a broad readership, since the topic applies not only to all technical processes but also due to the interdisciplinary expertise required to solve the challenge. It is the ultimate reference work for years to come.
This fifth volume in the series is the first comprehensive source on energy systems engineering for the process industries. As such, it combines key contributions from leading research groups to form a single source of vital information otherwise dispersed among specialized journals.
Inspired by the leading authority in the field, the Centre for Process Systems Engineering at Imperial College London, this interdisciplinary work explores new technologies of sustainable energy sources and their optimization as energy sufficient systems. The innovative technologies thus covered are crucial for the continued growth of already established multi-billion-dollar commercial markets: oil and gas, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals, food and beverage and consumer goods.
From the contents:
* Polygeneration systems engineering
