Description: Flexible and easy-to-follow tools and case studies illustrate this text covering the design of waste recycle and recovery systems in the chemical process industries. Intended for upper division and undergraduate chemical engineering students as well as mid-level management professionals, the book takes the reader through the a wide range of waste recycle/reuse/recovery systems.

The environmental impact of industrial waste is one of the most serious challenges facing the chemical process industries. From a focus on end-of-pipe treatment in the 1970s, chemical manufacturers have increasingly implemented pollution prevention policies in which pollutants are mitigated at the source or separated and recovered and then reused or sold.

This book is the first to present systematic techniques for cost-effective pollution prevention, altering what has been an art that depends on experience and subjective opinion into a science rooted in fundamental engineering principles and process integration. Step-by-step procedures are presented that are widely applicable to the chemical, petrochemical, petroleum, pharmaceutical, food, and metals industries.

Various levels of sophistication ranging from graphical methods to algebraic procedures and mathematical optimization, numerous applications and case studies, and integrated software for optimizing waste recovery systems make Pollution Prevention through Process Integration: Systematic Design Tools a "must read" for a wide spectrum of practicing engineers, environmental scientists, plant managers, advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and researchers in the areas of pollution prevention and process integration.
-- Allows the reader toestablish pollution-prevention targets for a process and then develop implementable, cost-effective solutions
-- Contains step-by-step procedures based on fundamental engineering principles
-- Author is internationally recognized as the principal developer of mass-integration methodology
-- CD-ROM contains optimization examples and problems with integrated LINGO software
-- Presents systematic tools for tackling environmental problems in a wide variety of process industries
