Process Energy, Environment, and Safety
Efficiencies, performance and utilization of energy in chemical processes are always important and necessary to various processing. In so doing, research requires the integration of various process equipments with energy measurement analysis as well as engineering economics and management. A closely related research is to minimize the impact of chemicals and wastes, generated in the industrial processes, on the environment. So there is an attention on seeking the ways to deliver the fuels and chemicals with minimal environmental consequences. There is also an awareness of the need to produce degradable products, to reduce wastes, and to convert unavoidable wastes and byproducts into substances that are environmental friendly. In addition, there is growing need for more effective pollution abatement to meet the increasingly stringent emissions regulations. Clean technology and waste treatment technology using various methods will also be investigated.
