Chemical Process Design and Integration 2nd Edition
Written by a highly regarded author with industrial and academic experience, this new edition of an established bestselling book provides practical guidance for students, researchers, and those in chemical engineering. The book includes a new section on sustainable energy, with sections on carbon capture and sequestration, as a result of increasing environmental awareness; and a companion website that includes problems, worked solutions, and Excel spreadsheets to enable students to carry out complex calculations.
Multidisciplinary resource for graduate studies and the biotechnology industry Knowledge of the genetic basis of biological functioning continues to grow at an astronomical rate, as do the challenges and opportunities of applying this information to the production of therapeutic compounds, specialty biochemicals, functional food ingredients, environmentally friendly biocatalysts, and new bioproducts from renewable resources. While genetic engineering of living organisms transforms the science of genomics into treatments for cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, or products for industry and agriculture, the science and technology of bioseparations are the keys to delivering these products in a purified form suitable for use by people. The methods, theory, and materials that reduce the science of bioseparations to practice, whether in the laboratory or the plant, are the subjects of Bioseparations Engineering. Examples address purification of biomolecules ranging from recombinant proteins to gene therapy products, with footnotes detailing economics of the products. Mechanistic analysis and engineering design methods are given for: Isocratic and gradient chromatography Sedimentation, centrifugation, and filtration Membrane systems Precipitation and crystallization Topics addressed within this framework arestationeryphase selection; separations development; modeling of ion exchange, size exclusion, reversed phase, hydrophobic interaction, and affinity chromatography; the impact of regulatory issues on chromatography process design; organization of separation strategies into logical sequences of purification steps; and bridges between molecular biology, combinatorial methods, and separations science. A result of teaching and developing the subject matter over ten years, Bioseparations Engineering is an ideal text for graduate students, as well as a timely desk book for process engineers, process scientists, researchers, and research associates in the pharmaceutical, food, and life sciences industries.

GAIN A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF CHEMICAL PROCESSES Material that’s presented in a very clear and accessible way…frequent use of examples…case studies based on commercial processes…a CD-ROM with instructional tutorials, a powerful equation solver, and a visual encyclopedia of chemical process equipment…These are just a few of the features of this text that help provide a realistic, informative introduction to chemical processes. Key Features of the Third Edition Nearly every section in the third edition has been revised to provide increased clarity. Hundreds of new and revised problems and new case studies cover a broader spectrum of chemical engineering applications. Some problems require spreadsheeting, and others call for using equation-solving software. The INTERACTIVE CHEMICAL PROCESS PRINCIPLES (ICPP) CD-ROM provides an active learning environment. With this software, students respond to questions and receive immediate feedback, explore variations in process parameters and se e the effects of their changes on process operations, and more.

“Plastics Additives and Testing” is a practical book for engineers and operators and discusses both inorganic and organic chemicals that are widely used as additives in plastics processing operations.
It is common practice today to use analytical techniques to improve plastics processing. Because it is critically important to manufacture quality products, a reasonable balance must be drawn between control requirements and parameters for improved processing method with respect to plastics additives. This book serves to implement this balance in the manufacturing line.
Written by a successful, international consultant with an excellent publishing track record, it combines plastics additives, testing and quality control and is a valuable and critical book for engineers and operators to have when performing their tasks.
