Pretreatment for Reverse Osmosis Desalination by Nikolay Voutchkov
This book is a comprehensive reference on all existing and emerging seawater pretreatment technologies used for desalination. The book focuses on reverse osmosis membrane desalination, which at present is the most widely applied technology for the production of fresh drinking water from highly saline water sources (brackish water and seawater). Each chapter contains examples illustrating various pretreatment technologies and their practical implementation.
Desalination Sustainability: A Technical, Socioeconomic, and Environmental Approach by Hassan Arafat
This book presents a technical, socioeconomical, and environmental approach that guides researchers and technology developers on how to quantify the energy efficiency of a proposed desalination process using thermodynamics-based tools. The book offers the technical reader an understanding of the issues related to desalination sustainability. For example, technology users, such as public utility managers will gain the ability and tools to assess whether or not desalination is a good choice for a city or country.
Reaction Engineering by Shaofen Li, Feng Xin and Lin Li
This book clearly and concisely covers the concepts and models of reaction engineering and then applies them to real-world reactor design. The book emphasizes that the foundation of reaction engineering requires the use of kinetics and transport knowledge to explain and analyze reactor behaviors. The authors use readily understandable language to cover the subject, leaving readers with a comprehensive guide on how to understand, analyze, and make decisions related to improving chemical reactions and chemical reactor design. Worked examples, and more than 20 exercises at the end of each chapter, provide opportunities for readers to practice solving problems related to the content covered in the book.
Chemical Engineering Process Simulation by Nishanth Chemmangattuvalappil, Denny Ng Kok Sum, Rafil Elyas, Cheng-Liang Chen, I Lung Chien, Hao-Yeh Lee and Rene Elms
This book is ideal for students, early career researchers, and practitioners, as it guides them through chemical processes and unit operations using the main simulation softwares that are used in the industrial sector. This book will help readers predict the characteristics of a process using mathematical models and computer-aided process simulation tools, as well as model and simulate process performance before detailed process design takes place.
