This Book Deals With The Design And Integration Of Chemical Processes, Emphasizing The Conceptual Issues That Are Fundamental To The Creation Of The Process. Chemical Process Design Requires The Selection Of A Series Of Processing Steps And Their Integration To Form A Complete Manufacturing System. The Text Emphasizes Both The Design And Selection Of The Steps As Individual Operations And Their Integration. Also, The Process Will Normally Operate As Part Of An Integrated Manufacturing Site Consisting Of A Number Of Processes Serviced By A Common Utility System. The Design Of Utility Systems Has Been Dealt With In The Text So That The Interactions Between Processes And The Utility System And Interactions Between Different Processes Through The Utility System Can Be Exploited To Maximize The Performance Of The Site As A Whole.

About The Author
Professor Robin Smith Is Head Of The Centre For Process Integration At The University Of Manchester Institute Of Science And Technology (Umist) In The United Kingdom. Since Joining, Professor Smith Has Acted Extensively As A Consultant In Process Integration Projects And Manages The Process Integration Research Consortium At Umist, Which Sponsors And Acts As A Test-Bed For The Research In Process Design And Integration.

Before Joining Umist Smith Had Extensive Industrial Experience With Rohm & Haas In Process Investigation And Process Design And With Ici In Computer-Aided Design And Process Integration During Which Time He Was A Member Of The Ici Process Integration Team That Pioneered The First Industrial Applications Of Process Integration Design Methods.

Professor Smith Is Also A Fellow Of The Royal Academy Of Engineering, A Fellow Of The Institution Of Chemical Engineers In The Uk And A Chartered Engineer. In 1992 He Was Awarded The Hanson Medal Of The Institution Of Chemical Engineers In The Uk For His Work On Clean Process Technology.
