This is the first book dedicated to the entire field of integrated chemical processes, covering process design, analysis, operation and control of these processes. Both the editors and authors are internationally recognized experts from different fields in industry and academia, and their contributions describe all aspects of intelligent integrations of chemical reactions and physical unit operations such as heat exchange, separational operations and mechanical unit operations. As a unique feature, the book also introduces new concepts for treating different integration concepts on a generalized basis.
Of great value to a broad audience of researchers and engineers from industry and academia.

"Umfangreicher, didaktischer und beispielhafter kann man sich dem Thema wohl gegenwärtig nicht nähern."

"Diese Kombination aus tiefgreifender Analyse und Übersichtsbeiträgen macht das Buch zu einer interessanten Lektüre sowohl für den Ingenieur, der sich mit einer speziellen Fragestellung auseinander setzt, als auch für den interessierten Fachmann, der sich einen Überblick über etwas unbekanntere Gebiete der Prozessintegration verschaffen möchte."
