PNIE Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering 4th Edition
The book presents in a clear and concise manner the fundamentals of chemical reaction engineering. The structure of the book allows the student to solve reaction engineering problems through reasoning rather than through memorization and recall of numerous equations, restrictions, and conditions under which each equation applies. The fourth edition contains more industrial chemistry with real reactors and real engineering and extends the wide range of applications to which chemical reaction engineering principles can be applied (i.e., cobra bites, medications, ecological engineering)

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.

A functional discussion of the crop selection process for biomass energy
The Selection Process of Biomass Materials for the Production of Bio-fuels and Co-firing provides a detailed examination and analysis for a number of energy crops and their use as a source for generating electricity and for the production of bio-fuels. Renowned renewable energy expert and consultant Dr. Najib Altawell begins with the fundamentals of bio-fuels and co-firing and moves on to the main feature, which is the methodology that assists energy scientists and engineers to arrive at the most suitable biomass materials tailored to each company’s business and economic environments and objectives.
This methodology provides a framework whereby power-generating companies can insert their own values for each factor, whether business factor (BF) or scientific & technical factors (S&T) or both simultaneously. The methodology provides a list of factors related to the biomass energy business. The average values have been obtained from the survey method and laboratory tests. These values are the standard values power companies can use if they need or wish to use them.
The Selection Process of Biomass Materials for the Production of Bio-fuels and Co-firing has been designed and compiled for the widest possible range of readers, researchers, businesspeople, and economists who are connected to the renewable energy field in general, and biomass energy in particular. Because of its focus on practical data and applications, the book is also accessible for general readers who may or may not have a technical or scientific background.
There are various books on green chemistry on the market, but without focus on sustainable industrial processes. This resource provides an overview of the new trends and hot topics in process design, describing the challenge of designing industrial chemical processes that are up-to-date, sustainable, and economically feasible. The industrial applications are presented directly by the companies – a veritable ‘Who’s Who’ of the chemical industry – that developed these innovative technologies. It provides an essential reference for chemical engineers, chemists in industry, process engineers, catalytic chemists, materials scientists, and environmental chemists.
