Description:

For upper level undergraduate and graduate level Chemical Engineering courses in Pollution Prevention and Chemical Process Design that are offered to Chemical Engineering or Environmental Engineering students, as well as Practicing Chemical or Civil Engineers interested in finding ways to prevent pollution. This book is the result of the USEPA (Environmental Protection Agency) green engineering curriculum development effort for chemical engineering departments. The book was developed to fulfill ABET/AICHE requirements on environment, health and safety. The book provides a comprehensive overview and introduction to environmentally preferable, or green approaches in the design and development of chemical processes and products for both engineering students and practitioners. It covers basic pollution prevention and waste minimization techniques, while emphasizing the environmental risks that must be considered in the design of chemical process and products. Green Engineering: Environmentally Conscious Design of Chemical Processes is also the complete professional's guide to cost-effective design, commercialization, and use of chemical processes that minimize pollution at the source, thus reducing the impact on health and the environment.
