Advanced Optimization for Process Systems Engineering by
Based on the author's forty years of teaching experience, this unique textbook covers both basic and advanced concepts of optimization theory and methods for process systems engineers. Topics covered include continuous, discrete and logic optimization (linear, nonlinear, mixed-integer and generalized disjunctive programming), optimization under uncertainty (stochastic programming and flexibility analysis), and decomposition techniques (Lagrangean and Benders decomposition). Assuming only a basic background in calculus and linear algebra, it enables easy understanding of mathematical reasoning, and numerous examples throughout illustrate key concepts and algorithms. End-of-chapter exercises involving theoretical derivations and small numerical problems, as well as in modeling systems like GAMS, enhance understanding and help put knowledge into practice. Accompanied by two appendices containing web links to modeling systems and models related to applications in PSE, this is an essential text for single-semester, graduate courses in process systems engineering in departments of chemical engineering.

Driving Continuous Process Safety Improvement from Investigated Incidents by
New perspectives on how to successfully drive changes in companies' process safety management systems Simply learning from process safety incidents has proven to be insufficient to drive performance improvements. To truly change, organizations must seek out & embed learnings in their programs & systems. This book picks up from previous CCPS books, Incidents That Define Process Safety and Investigating Process Safety Incidents. This important book: Offers guidelines for improving process safety performance by embedding the lessons learned from publicly available investigations Recommends a continuous improvement learning model focused on organizational learning Provides examples for using the model's techniques to drive continuous improvements Contains an index of more than 400 investigated incidents and introduces the concept of Drilldown to help find lessons that might not have been mentioned before. Written for safety professionals and process safety consultants, Driving Continuous Process Safety Improvement from Investigated Incidents is a hands-on guide for adopting a model for successfully driving the learnings from process safety incident investigations.

Catalyst Engineering Technology by
This book gives a comprehensive explanation of what governs the breakage of extruded materials, and what techniques are used to measure it. The breakage during impact aka collision is explained using basic laws of nature allowing readers to determine the handling severity of catalyst manufacturing equipment and the severity of entire plants. This information can then be used to improve on the architecture of existing plants and how to design grass-roots plants. The book begins with a summary of particle forming techniques in the particle technology industry. It covers extrusion technology in more detail since extrusion is one of the workhorses for particle manufacture. A section is also dedicated on how to describe transport and chemical reaction in such particulates for of course their final use. It presents the fundamentals of the study of breakage by relating basic laws in different fields (mechanics and physics) and this leads to two novel dimensionless groups that govern breakage. These topics are then apply these topics to R&D scale-up and manufacturing and shows how this approach is directly applicable.

Chemo-Biological Systems for Co2 Utilization by
"This book will give emphasis on the energy generation in the form of biofuels, bioelectricity or biogas using chemicals, nanomaterial, microbial, enzymatic and chemo-enzymatic integrated systems from CO2. This book has been divided into four sections. The first section is comprised of four chapters which will describe the importance and utilization of CO2 in the living system, various fundamental methods, policies and techniques of CO2 conversion. The second section will focus on the absorption and fixation of CO2 using various ionic liquids, organic solvents, amine based solutions, electro catalytic reduction, nanomaterial, porphyrins, ceramics MOFs and activated carbons and biological material particularly. This section will be covered with 5-6 chapters which will draw the insight of various chemical engineers, researchers working across the globe for CO2 conversion. After this third section will give emphasis on the production of value added products using CO2. It will contain 4-5 chapters which mainly focused on the production of bio-methanol, industrial carbonates lime, liquid and gaseous fuels, industrially useful precursors etc. In the last section this book will discusses potential of microbial system, enzymes in the sequestration of CO2 and its utilization. The combined chemo-enzymatic system for utilization of CO2 will be discussed in the respective chapters of this book. This reliable information from various active researchers and groups will be helpful to find out the alternatives for clean energy and mitigating the climatic change. This book will help the researchers and industrialists to better understand the correlation between microbial, biological and chemical products for their further use to convert the increased level of CO2 into energy based system. The final chapter will present the chemo-enzymatic system for decarbonization of automobile and industrial smoke to direct the clean emission"--
