Process Intensification is a hot topic in chemical and process engineering - and beyond - and is now reaching a maturity that is seeing PI concepts applied to a wide range of processes and technologies. This is the first book to provide a practical working guide to understanding PI and developing successful PI solutions and applications.

As well as detailing technologies and practical information, the book focuses on safety, energy and environmental issues, giving guidance on how to incorporate PI in plant design and operation safely, efficiently and effectively.

This book provides up-to-date access to the best current information on PI, both through the world-class experience of the authors and by pinpointing other significant sources of data, equipment and expertise.

It will be of value to engineers working with leading-edge process technologies as well as those looking to further the use of PI in the chemical engineering sector. It will also appeal to those involved in the research and development of chemical, process, environmental, pharmaceutical, and bioscience systems.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Indeed, this compilation is really a great book full of information, and written by leaders in the field; actually the makers of process intensification. This is tangible throughout all chapters and contributes to the charm of the book. The book contains a wealth of information, is thoroughly checked and comprehensive; there is even unique information given on fields outside chemical engineering, e.g., relating to the environment, electronics, food and agriculture. The same is true for the description of reactors/equipments and methods. This includes equipment as diverse as rotating reactors, microreactors, foams, plate reactors and so on. In this way, it has almost a "bible" style. Such completeness is not given in any other book/compilation in that field... [T]he book is undoubtedly the first reference in the field and of utmost value to audiences looking to take current technologies into new process areas, as well as those looking to further its use in the chemical engineering sector. The high degree of detailing technologies and practical applications, give profound guidance on how to incorporate PI in plant design and operations safely, efficiently and effectively."—Green Process Synth 1 (2012)

Meet the Author

David Reay manages David Reay & Associates, UK, is a Visiting Professor at Heriot-Watt University and Nottingham University, UK, and is also an Honorary Professor at Nottingham University, UK. His main research interests are compact heat exchangers, process intensification, and heat pumps. He is also Editor-in-Chief of Applied Thermal Engineering and Author/Co-author of eight other books, including the second edition of Process Intensification due to publish in 2013.

Colin Ramshaw conceived and developed the concept of Process Intensification in the 1980’s while working for ICI. He pioneered further aspects of PI after being appointed to the Chair of Chemical Engineering at Newcastle University. He is now a Visiting Professor at Cranfield University
