    • Design and Analysis of Flexible Biodiesel Processes with Multiple Feedstocks 

      Pokoo-Aikins, Grace Amarachukwu (2011-10-21)
      With the growing interest in converting a wide variety of biomass-based feedstocks to biofuels, there is a need to develop effective procedures for the design and optimization of multi-feedstock biorefineries. The unifying ...
    • Integrated approaches to the optimization of process-utility systems 

      Al-Azri, Nasser Ahmed (2009-05-15)
      The goal of this work is to develop a conceptual framework and computational tools for the optimization of utility systems in the process industries. The emphasis is devoted to the development of systematic design techniques ...
    • Process Design and Integration of Shale Gas to Methanol 

      Ehlinger, Victoria M. (2013-02-04)
      Recent breakthroughs in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing technology have made huge reservoirs of previously untapped shale gas and shale oil formations available for use. These new resources have already made ...
    • Process simulation, integration and optimization of blending of petrodiesel with biodiesel 

      Wang, Ting (2009-05-15)
      With the increasing stringency on sulfur content in petrodiesel, there is a growing tendency of broader usage of ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) with sulfur content of 15 ppm. Refineries around the world should develop ...
    • Productivity enhancement through process integration 

      Alotaibi, Meteab Aujian (Texas A&M University, 2006-10-30)
      A hierarchical procedure is developed to determine maximum overall yield of a process and optimize process changes to achieve such a yield. First, a targeting procedure is developed to identify an upper bound of the overall ...
    • Resource conservation and optimization via process integration 

      Gabriel, Frederico Burjack (Texas A&M University, 2006-04-12)
      The process industries are characterized by the enormous use of natural resources such as raw materials, solvents, water, and utilities. Additionally, significant amounts of wastes are discharged from industrial facilities. ...
