Overview

Improving sustainability requires much more than just meeting renewable energy goals or reducing our consumption of fossil fuels. Key to any successful strategy is the ability to develop more sustainable production processes. From solar panels to bioplastics, biofuels to membrane reactor technology, sustainable development technologies such as process intensification are already making a difference. Bringing together the latest technologies for sustainable development, the book contains sections on Energy; Process intensification; Bio-based platforms for biomolecule production; and Soil and Water Remediation.

Chapters cover:

  • Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Technology
  • Renewable energy penetration
  • Smart Grid
  • Process Intensification benefits and Membrane Reactor Technology
  • Sustainable biofuels production including Bioethanol and Biodiesel
  • Bioplastics production and environmental impact
  • Biosurfactants and their applications
  • Water management and bioremediation

Sustainable Development in Chemical Engineering – Innovative Technologies provides a broad but detailed industrial engineering viewpoint on this critical subject, and should appeal to students and researchers in chemical engineering, chemical processes, and biotechnology as well as chemical engineers in industry.
