The past, present, and future of green chemistry and greenengineering From college campuses to corporations, the past decade witnesseda rapidly growing interest in understanding sustainable chemistryand engineering. Green Chemistry and Engineering: A PracticalDesign Approach integrates the two disciplines into a singlestudy tool for students and a practical guide for working chemistsand engineers. In Green Chemistry and Engineering, theauthors--each highly experienced in implementing greenchemistry and engineering programs in industrialsettings--provide the bottom-line thinking required to notonly bring sustainable chemistry and engineering closer together,but to also move business towards more sustainable practices andproducts. Detailing an integrated, systems-oriented approach thatbridges both chemical syntheses and manufacturing processes, thisinvaluable reference covers: * Green chemistry and green engineering in the movement towardssustainability * Designing greener, safer chemical synthesis * Designing greener, safer chemical manufacturing processes * Looking beyond current processes to a lifecycle thinkingperspective * Trends in chemical processing that may lead to more sustainablepractices The authors also provide real-world examples and exercises topromote further thought and discussion. The EPA defines green chemistry as the design of chemicalproducts and processes that reduce or eliminate the use orgeneration of hazardous substances. Green engineering is describedas the design, commercialization, and use of products and processesthat are feasible and economical while minimizing both thegeneration of pollution at the source and the risk to human healthand the environment. While there is no shortage of books on eitherdiscipline, Green Chemistry and Engineering is the first totruly integrate the two.


(Choice, 1 November 2011)
"It also makes an excellent reference for those working in theseareas, as it is the first work to incorporate both green chemistryand engineering and apply them in industrial settings. Summing Up:Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates throughprofessionals/practitioners."
(AZom, 1 March 2011)
"To meet this need, the book provides examples and practicalexercises that help the student or advanced practitioner useunderstand these concepts as applied to the industrial setting andto use the material in direct and indirect applications. Theexercises make the book suitable for self-study or as a textbook."
