While chemical products are useful in their own right-they address the demands and needs of the masses-they also drain our natural resources and generate unwanted pollution. Green Chemical Engineering: An Introduction to Catalysis, Kinetics, and Chemical Processes encourages minimized use of non-renewable natural resources and fosters maximized pollution prevention. This text stresses the importance of developing processes that are environmentally friendly and incorporate the role of green chemistry and reaction engineering in designing these processes.
Focused on practical application rather than theory, the book integrates chemical reaction engineering and green chemical engineering, and is divided into two sections. The first half of the book covers the basic principles of chemical reaction engineering and reactor design, while the second half of the book explores topics on green reactors, green catalysis, and green processes. The authors mix in elaborate illustrations along with important developments, practical applications, and recent case studies. They also include numerous exercises, examples, and problems covering the various concepts of reaction engineering addressed in this book, and provide MATLAB ® software used for developing computer codes and solving a number of reaction engineering problems.
Consisting of six chapters organized into two sections, this text:Covers the basic principles of chemical kinetics and catalysis Gives a brief introduction to classification and the various types of chemical reactorsDiscusses in detail the differential and integral methods of analysis of rate equations for different types of reactionsPresents the development of rate equations for solid catalyzed reactions and enzyme catalyzed biochemical reactions Explains methods for estimation of kinetic parameters from batch reactor dataDetails topics on homogeneous reactorsIncludes graphical procedures for the design of multiple reactorsContains topics on heterogeneous reactors including catalytic and non-catalytic reactorsReviews various models for non-catalytic gas-solid and gas-liquid reactionsIntroduces global rate equations and explicit design equations for a variety of non-catalytic reactorsGives an overview of novel green reactors and the application of CFD technique in the modeling of green reactorsOffers detailed discussions of a number of novel reactorsProvides a brief introduction to CFD and the application of CFDHighlights the development of a green catalytic process and the application of a green catalyst in the treatment of industrial effluent
Comprehensive and thorough in its coverage, Green Chemical Engineering: An Introduction to Catalysis, Kinetics, and Chemical Processes explains the basic concepts of green engineering and reactor design fundamentals, and provides key knowledge for students at technical universities and professionals already working in the industry.

"The use of modern computational tools in problem solving has given an entirely different dimension to this book, which makes it stand out from others."
-M. B. Saidutta Ph.D, NITK, Surathkal
"The book is very apt for both undergraduate and postgraduate chemical engineering curriculum. The book provides special emphasis on computer aided solution approaches and also introduces the readers to some state of-the-art chemical engineering modeling software."
-Prakash Kotecha, Department of Chemical Engineering, IIT Guwahati
