Modeling of Process Intensification

Frerich J. Keil (Editor)

ISBN: 978-3-527-61059-4 June 2007 422 Pages


Combining the knowledge involved in process engineering and process modeling, this is the first book to cover all modeling methods applicable to process intensification. Both the editors and authors are renowned experts from industry and academia in the various fields of process modeling and integrated chemical processes.
Following an introduction to the topic, the book goes on to look at equipment and operational methods, monolithic catalysis, HEX, micro- and reverse flow reactors, catalytic and reactive distillation, the simulated-moving bed and vibration bubble column as well as ultrasound and ultrasonic reactors. A final chapter is devoted to processes under supercritical conditions.
In its treatment of hot topics of multidisciplinary interest, this book is of great value to researchers and engineers alike.
