The main theme of this volume is energy, environment, and sustainability from the chemical engineering point of view. These topics are critical issues faced by chemical engineers and biochemical engineers around the world. Along with this main theme, the book also covers important recent trends in chemical engineering and bioprocess engineering, such as CFD simulation, statistical optimization, process control, waste water treatment, micro reactors, fluid bed drying, hydrodynamic studies of gas liquid mixture in pipe, and much more. Other chapters cover important ultrasound-assisted extraction, process intensification, polymers and coatings, as well as modelling of bioreactor and enzyme systems and biological nitrification.
