Advances in Hydrotreating for Integrated Biofuel Production covers the recent advances in the upgrading of biomass-obtained products into liquid fuels (also known as biofuels) by hydrotreating processes. Including introductory information, the book covers the identification of hydrotreating processes such as thermo-catalytic reactions in the presence of heterogeneous catalysts and hydrogen. Required materials for the development of the process are investigated with consideration of the characteristics of biomass, bio-oil production, upgrading alternatives, hydrotreating alternatives, hydrotreating of different biomass-based material, hydrodeoxygenation of separated bio-oil compounds, classification of the hydrotreating catalyst, life-cycle assessment and hydrogen production routes. Information to inform the further development of the process is collected together to encourage further progress toward a scalable process for biofuel production and the development of a large-scale hydrotreating strategy.

Biorefinery of Industrial Effluents for a Sustainable Circular Economy provides a combined approach on environmental engineering, which involves the improvement of the natural environment or remediation of polluted sites. In addition, it discusses bioprocess engineering involving the development of processes for the manufacture of products from biological materials to produce a valuable bioproduct. It covers sources, impacts, and applications of industrial effluents that could potentially be used as feedstock for the IEB with examples of applied research that demonstrates the relationship between the effluents, biorefinery, treatment and bioproduct recovery.Materials that can be produced from IEB and the treatment processes for such are considered.

Waste-Based Zeolite: Synthesis and Environmental Applications focuses on the use of waste-based materials to fabricate zeolite and its subsequent use in environmental applications. It presents recent progress in zeolite synthesis using wastes products such as fly ash, steel slag, biomass waste, water treatment plant sludge, and municipal waste, among others. It discusses the application of waste-based zeolite for environmental applications such as biodiesel production, as well as considering techniques for recovering spent zeolite. Many industries produce substantial quantities of waste material comprising various hazardous constituents that lead to pollution and threaten the environment.However, such waste can often be a rich source of precursor ingredients for zeolite synthesis, and waste-based zeolites could potentially provide an economically and environmentally viable alternative to commercially available zeolites. This book illuminates this fascinating avenue of research.

Ludwig's Applied Process Design for Chemical and Petrochemical Plants is ever evolving starting with the first edition some 60 years ago. The volumes in this fifth edition provide improved techniques and fundamental designs methodologies to guide the practicing engineer in designing process equipment and applying chemical processes to the properly detailed hardware. Like its predecessor, this new edition continues to present updated information for achieving optimum operational and process conditions and to avoid problems caused by inadequate sizing and lack of internally detailed hardware. The volumes provide both fundamental theories where applicable and direct application of these theories to applied equations essential in the design effort. This approach in presenting design information is essential for troubleshooting process equipment and in executing system performance analysis. Volume 1B covers process planning, flow-sheeting and scheduling, cost estimation and economic, physical properties of liquids and gases, fluid flow, mixing of liquids, mechanical separations, process safety and pressure-relieving devices, metallurgy and corrosion, process optimization. It builds upon Ernest E. Ludwig’s classic text to further enhance its use as a chemical engineering process design manual of methods and proven fundamentals. This new edition includes new content on three-phase separation, mixing of liquids, ejectors and mechanical vacuum systems, process safety and pressure-relieving devices, metallurgy and corrosion, process safety management / HAZOP and hazard analyses, and optimization of chemical process / blending.

Ludwig's Applied Process Design for Chemical and Petrochemical Plants Incorporating Process Safety Incidents is ever evolving starting with the first edition some 60 years ago. The volumes in this fifth edition provide improved techniques and fundamental design methodologies to guide the practicing engineer in designing process equipment and applying chemical processes to the properly detailed hardware. As indicative of the new title, process safety incidents are incorporated in many of the chapters, reviewing the root causes, and how these could be mitigated in future. Like its predecessor, this new edition continues to present updated information for achieving optimum operational and process conditions and to avoid problems caused by inadequate sizing and lack of internally detailed hardware. The volumes provide both fundamental theories where applicable and direct application of these theories to applied equations essential in the design effort. This approach in presenting design information is essential for troubleshooting process equipment and in executing system performance analysis.Volume One covers process planning, flow-sheeting and scheduling, cost estimation and economic evaluation, physical properties of liquids and gases, fluid flow, mixing of liquids, mechanical separations, process safety and pressure-relieving devices, metallurgy and corrosion, process optimization, and process engineering rules of thumb. It builds upon Ernest E. Ludwig’s classic text to further enhance its use as a chemical engineering process design manual of methods and proven fundamentals. This new edition contains twelve chapters, which include new content on three-phase separation, mixing of liquids, ejectors, and mechanical vacuum systems, process safety and pressure-relieving devices, metallurgy and corrosion, and optimization of chemical process/blending.Some chapters provide case studies for process safety incidents, analysing root causes and providing recomendations, which are well illustrated from US Chemical Safety Hazard Investigation Board (www.csb.gov). Finally, this book contains an extensive glossary of Petroleum and Petrochemical Terminologies and Physical and Chemical Characteristics of Major Hydrocarbons.
