    • A Design Approach for On-Purpose Propylene Production with Safety and Sustainability Considerations 

      Agarwal, Ashwin (2018-07-27)
      The advent of Shale Gas and the increasing spread between the supply and demand curves for propylene present an opportunity for adopting alternative pathways to produce propylene. This study aims to investigate a sustainable ...
    • A Systematic Approach for the Design of Integrated Energy and Chemicals Production 

      Noureldin, Mohamed Mahmoud (2014-12-02)
      With the tightening of the crude oil supply-demand gap, interest in energy independence, and global climate change concerns, attention has been directed to finding alternatives to crude oil. In particular, efforts have ...
    • An Integrated Approach to Water-Energy Nexus with Multiple Energy Sources 

      Al-Aboosi, Fadhil Yousuf Mohammed (2019-07-17)
      The sustainable development of the entire world is confronting considerable challenges due to the tremendous expansion in energy demand that synchronizes with fresh water scarcity, vast depletion of conventional energy ...
    • Anchor Tenant Approaches in Process Integration and Design 

      Topolski, Kevin Jacob (2019-02-11)
      Global chemical demand is growing at a significant rate as it is driven by population growth. This growth entails the increased usage of resources and environmental stress if a business as usual approach is taken. Economic ...
    • Heat and Power Systems Design 

      Spriggs, H. D.; Shah, J. V. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1987-09)
      The selection of heat and power systems usually does not include a thorough analysis of the process heating, cooling and power requirements. In most cases, these process requirements are accepted as specifications ...
    • Integrated approaches to the optimal design of multiscale systems 

      Lovelady, Eva Marie (2009-05-15)
      This work is aimed at development of systematic approaches to the design of multiscale systems. Specifically four problems are addressed: environmental impact assessment (EIA) of new and retrofitted industrial processes, ...
    • Mitigating Pollution Concerns through Process Integration Technology Steps 

      Tripathi, P.; Shukla, D.; Smith, S. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1991-06)
      With increasing concern to reduce the emission of SOx, NOx and CO2, there is a growing awareness of making most industrial processes more energy efficient. It is believed that this can be achieved through collaborative ...
    • Optimization of hybrid dynamic/steady-state processes using process integration 

      Grooms, Daniel Douglas (2009-06-02)
      Much research in the area of process integration has focused on steady-state processes. However, there are many process units that are inherently unsteady-state or perform best when operated in an unsteady-state manner. ...
    • A Process Integration Approach to the Strategic Design and Scheduling of Biorefineries 

      Elms, Rene ̓Davina (2011-02-22)
      This work focused upon design and operation of biodiesel production facilities in support of the broader goal of developing a strategic approach to the development of biorefineries. Biodiesel production provided an appropriate ...
    • Process Integration of Calcium Looping Technology 

      Tilak, Pooja (2017-07-14)
      Around 36 gigatonnes of CO₂ are released into the atmosphere every year. Mitigation of CO₂ emissions is essential in reducing the rising level of greenhouse gas emissions and associated climate change. Calcium Looping ...
    • Process Integration- What is the Incentive? 

      Declercq, D.; Kaibel, G. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1985-05)
      The very first flow sheet for a new plant arises when a number of unit operations are put together in a well defined sequence. From economic point of view, however, it is normally not attractive to build and to run such a ...
    • Process Integration: Designing for Energy, Capital and Operability 

      Linnhoff, B. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1985-05)
      Over the last five years, significant energy savings have been achieved by several international companies using the pinch concept for heat integration. New concepts are now being added to help the designer deal with capital ...
