As "end-of-pipe" solutions to environmental pollution are costly and risky, chemical engineers are required to design industrial processes that not only maximise output and efficiency, but also minimise emissions. Commercially available design and simulation packages (such as ASPEN and ChemCAD) are incorporating this facility more and more, so that a variety of tool options for process design exist. This book presents an overview of the different technologies currently on-hand and includes discussion of the emergent trends and techniques for the future. It focuses on pollution prevention, includes case studies and examples, and details technology in development and not yet available.

Industry Reviews

"These are papers by international experts, all recognizing that the most fundamental and sustainable approach to minimizing industrial pollution is by redesigning the sources of the processes/products and their operating particles." -"Aslib Book Guide Vol 66 No 7, October 2001 "'this book...was edited by and for chemical engineers, and it is written especially for those engineers involved in chemical process and plant design.' "Journal of Hazardous Materials, 99(2003)223."
