Process Synthesis and Design


Part-B. Process Synthesis and Design

Process synthesis and design lie at the heart of Process Systems Engineering as they deal with the basic question on how to select the topology and parameters of process systems.

We have organized the papers in Part-B. Process Synthesis and Design in the following subsections:
- Review
- Synthesis of Chemical Processes
- Synthesis of General Separations
- Synthesis/Design of Distillation Systems
- Synthesis/Design of Energy Exchange Networks
- Synthesis of Distillation Systems with Energy Integration
- Other Process Synthesis and Design Problem
