The 24th European Symposium on Computer Aided Process Engineering creates an international forum where scientific and industrial contributions of computer-aided techniques are presented with applications in process modeling and simulation, process synthesis and design, operation, and process optimization. The organizers have broadened the boundaries of Process Systems Engineering by inviting contributions at different scales of modeling and demonstrating vertical and horizontal integration. Contributions range from applications at the molecular level to the strategic level of the supply chain and sustainable development. They cover major classical themes, at the same time exploring a new range of applications that address the production of renewable forms of energy, environmental footprints and sustainable use of resources and water.

"In the six years since the third edition was completed, there have been major changes in the chemical industry. Biotechnology is quickly overtaking the petrochemicals industry as the dominant sector. These changes are reflected in the new processes being developed, many of which have their own names. Of course, niche improvements are still being made in petrochemistry, and some of these have new names too. Gathering and defining a large portion of special named processes that may fall outside of standard chemical texts or be scattered among industry manuals, Encyclopedic Dictionary of Named Processes in Chemical Technology, Fourth Edition provides a single-source reference to an extensive array of named processes. Written by a highly experienced and respected author, this user-friendly text is presented in a practical dictionary format that is useful for a broad audience including industrial chemists and engineers"-- Provided by publisher.

Preface to the second edition: "After publishing the first edition in 2007, I received many suggestions from professionals who encouraged me to bring out the second edition. Considering the suggestions received from end users and to make the book more useful, I have added three more chapters to the book Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, and Distillation. I have also developed the following additional programs in Visual Basic. Calculation of JT effect due to drop in pressure Double-pipe heat exchanger design Batch heating and cooling calculation Metal temperature calculation Design of distillation column using Smoker equations With an additional 5 programs, the total number of programs has increased to 14. Most of the existing Visual Basic programs have been modified to make it more user friendly; however, the possibilities of program bugs cannot be totally eliminated. Arun K. Datta Brisbane, Australia"-- Provided by publisher.

"With large amounts of revenue at stake, process industries are focusing more on turnaround management as they strive to lengthen the interval between turnarounds. This book outlines a strategy to execute optimized shutdown and turnaround by changing plant operating conditions and inspection techniques. Because shutdown cost for a petroleum refinery is normally 30 percent higher than annual maintenance costs, this book details how to manage the more favorable turnaround option. The author explores different aspects, including philosophy, planning and scheduling, estimation, contractor management, and execution. The book also addresses safety management, human resources management, and post-shutdown review"-- Provided by publisher.
