Sustainable process engineering is a methodology to design new and redesign existing processes that follow the principles of green chemistry and green engineering, and ultimately contribute to a sustainable development. The newest achievements of chemical engineering, opened new opportunities to design more efficient, safe, compact and environmentally benign chemical processes. The book provides a guide to sustainable process design applicable in various industrial fields.

- Discusses the topic from a wide angle: chemistry, materials, processes, and equipment.

- Includes state-of-the-art research achievements that are yet to be industrially implemented.

- Transfers knowledge between chemists and chemical engineers.

- QR codes direct the readers to animations, short videos, magazines, and blogs on specific topics.

- Worked examples deepen the understanding of the sustainable assessment of chemical manufacturing processes.
