Cobertura temática

In this new edition, experts Arnold and Stewart share their many years of in-the-field and class-room experience. Each chapter has been updated with the latest industry information. You will find new sections on:

* Oil-and-water separation
* Offshore-platform considerations
* Factors affecting oil-and-gas separation
* Potential operating problems
* Scrubbers
* Re-entrainment
* Drain systems
* Hydrocyclones
* Multiphase pumps
* Reciprocating pump operations
* Water droplet size

New figures, photos, charts, and tables consolidate hours of details into “at-a-glance” illustrations. Example problems accompany the update text. With this volume’s clear presentation, you will understand the basic concepts and techniques needed to DESIGN, SPECIFY, and OPERATE oilfield surface production facilities. This manual carefully describes the equipment and processes commonly used in oil-water separating and treating systems. It also shows you how to select the appropriate piping and pumping systems. The authors’ insights and practical suggestions help you understand the art and science of handling produced liquids. With this reference in hand, you can organize the project with a better grasp of the complex parameters needed to design and operate an efficient production facility.

Cobertura temática

Sustainability in the Design, Synthesis and Analysis of Chemical Engineering Processes is an edited collection of contributions from leaders in their field. It takes a holistic view of sustainability in chemical and process engineering design, and incorporates economic analysis and human dimensions. Ruiz-Mercado and Cabezas have brought to this book their experience of researching sustainable process design and life cycle sustainability evaluation to assist with development in government, industry and academia.

This book takes a practical, step-by-step approach to designing sustainable plants and processes by starting from chemical engineering fundamentals. This method enables readers to achieve new process design approaches with high influence and less complexity. It will also help to incorporate sustainability at the early stages of project life, and build up multiple systems level perspectives. Ruiz-Mercado and Cabezas’ book is the only book on the market that looks at process sustainability from a chemical engineering fundamentals perspective.

  • Improve plants, processes and products with sustainability in mind; from conceptual design to life cycle assessment
  • Avoid retro fitting costs by planning for sustainability concerns at the start of the design process
  • Link sustainability to the chemical engineering fundamentals

Cobertura temática

The development of catalysts is the most sophisticated art in chemical sciences. It can be read like a story book when the critical scientific contents are presented in a chronological manner with short and simple sentences. This book will meets these criteria. To address the sustainability issues of existing chemical manufacturing processes or producing new chemicals, researchers are developing alternate catalysts to eliminate toxic chemicals use and by-products formation. Sustainable Catalytic Processes presents critical discussions of the progress of such catalytic development. This book of contemporary research results in sustainable catalysis area will benefit scientists in both industries and academia, and students to learn recent catalysts/process development.

  • Reports the most recent developments in catalysis with a focus on environmentally friendly commercial processes, such as waste water treatment, alternate energy, etc
  • Bridges the theory, necessary for the development of environmentally friendly processes, and their implementation through pilot plant and large scale
  • Contains mainly laboratory scale data and encourages industrial scientists to test these processes on a pilot scale
  • Includes work examples featuring the development of the new catalysts/processes using bio-renewable feedstock satisfactorily addressing environmental concerns
  • Includes one chapter demonstrating real industrial examples motivating the industrial and academic researchers to pursue similar research

Sustainable Industrial Design and Waste Management: Cradle-to-cradle for Sustainable Development

Cobertura temática

Sustainable Industrial Design and Waste Management was inspired by the need to have a text that enveloped awareness and solutions to the ongoing issues and concerns of waste generated
from industry. The development of science and technology has increased human capacity
to extract resources from nature and it is only recently that industries are being held accountable for the detrimental effects the waste they produce has on the environment. Increased governmental research, regulation and corporate accountability are digging up issues pertaining to pollution control and waste treatment and environmental protection.

The traditional approach for clinical waste, agricultural waste, industrial waste, and municipal waste are depleting our natural resources. The main objective of this book is to conserve the natural resources by approaching 100 % full utilization of all types of wastes by cradle – to - cradle concepts, using Industrial Ecology methodology documented with case studies. Sustainable development and environmental protection cannot be achieved without establishing the concept of industrial ecology. The main tools necessary for establishing Industrial Ecology and sustainable development will be covered in the book. The concept of “industrial ecology” will help the industrial system to be managed and operated more or less like a natural ecosystem hence causing as less damage as possible to the surrounding environment.

*Numerous case studies allow the reader to adapt concepts according to personal
interest/field
*Reveals innovative technologies for the conservation of natural resources
*The only book which provides an integrated approach for sustainable development including tools, methodology, and indicators for sustainable development

Cobertura temática

Systems Neuroscience in Depression provides a comprehensive overview of the normal and depressed brain processes as studied from a systems neuroscience perspective. Systems neuroscience uses a wide variety of approaches to study how networks of neurons form the bases of higher brain function. A broad overview is discussed starting with a background from neurodevelopment and neural understanding as well as novel treatment approaches for depression. This book covers basic developmental aspects and depressive psychopathology, as well as the basic scientific background from animal models and experimental research. Current advances in systems neuroscience are highlighted in studies from child and adolescent psychiatry. Integrated approaches are presented with regards to genetics, neuroimaging and neuroinflammation as well as neuroendocrinology. The field of systems and network neuroscience is evolving rapidly and this book provides a greatly needed resource for researchers and practitioners in systems neuroscience and psychiatry.

  • Knowledge covering the whole life span from early to later life
  • Comprehensively written chapters developing from molecules via epigenetics and neural circuits to clinical neuroscience
  • Understanding the neurobiology of major depressive disorder
  • Integrating stress and environmental factors with molecular underpinnings
  • More than 25 illustrations and tables
