Sustainability and energy efficiency are key concepts extensively adopted by chemical and power industry that are fundamental to optimize production process and to guarantee on the other hand the ability of future generations to use resources in order to meet their needs.

Reducing the energy intensity of the CPI is another grand challenge for sustainability in the chemical industry. Continued reliance on fossil fuels can be anticipated, with eventual conversion from less abundant oil and natural gas to more abundant coal over the next years.

Today’s technologies enable energy and resource-use efficiency, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction, reusability of waste, and the development of sustainable materials and business practices. Through Responsible Care and the Global Product Strategy, the chemical industry is committed to advancing sustainable.

The book will guide industry professionals and researchers in ways to improve the efficiency and sustainability of food systems. Show less Sustainable Food Systems from Agriculture to Industry: Improving Production and Processing addresses the principle that food supply needs of the present must be met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

Examples of recent efforts include the switch to LED lighting and cars with improved fuel efficiency. Sustainable/Renewable Energy Production: This includes energy production from sources such as the sun, wind and tides, as well as biofuels.

The ultimate goal is to improve energy accessibility and affordability while reducing environmental harm.

Tracking Industrial Energy Efficiency and CO 2 Emissions (IEA, ), which estimates energy and carbon savings from the adoption of best-practice commercial technologies in manufacturing industries, suggests an overall level of energy-savings potential of 18–26 percent globally, with large-percentage savings from petroleum refining, pulp and paper, iron and steel, cement, and chemical manufacturing.

Sustainability is no longer just a matter of complying with regulators and dealing with NGOs. As customers and investors join the chorus of concern about the need to protect resources over the long term, it’s become a hot topic in chemical industry boardrooms.

Process Intensification: Engineering for Efficiency, Sustainability and Flexibility is the first book to provide a practical working guide to understanding process intensification (PI) and developing successful PI solutions and applications in chemical process, civil, environmental, energy, pharmaceutical, biological, and biochemical systems.

Abstract. Exergy is an index indicating the available energy value that is common to both energy and materials. Going back in history, since exergy was advocated by Rant in for heat utilization efficiency, it has been used for improving the design and the performance of energy transfer systems and various chemical plants.

Energy Efficiency: Concepts and Calculations is the first book of its kind to provide an applied, systems oriented description of energy intensity and efficiency in modern economies across the entire energy chain.

With an emphasis on analysis, specifically energy flow analysis, lifecycle energy accounting, economic analysis, technology evaluation, and policies/strategies for adopting high Book Edition: 1. As a unique, one-stop resource for sound and digested knowledge in this field, the Encyclopedia of Applied Electrochemistry comprises the first applications-oriented interdisciplinary work on the critical technologies underlying key advances such as energy efficiency (e.g.

batteries for electric cars, etc.), green and sustainable chemical industries, new materials (corrosion resistant and low-friction), and. Thermal Energy Storage Technologies for Sustainability is a broad-based overview describing the state-of-the-art in latent, sensible, and thermo-chemical energy storage systems and their applications across industries.

Beginning with a discussion of the efficiency and conservation advantages of balancing energy demand with production, the book goes on to describe current state-of-the art.

Process intensification (PI) is a chemical and process design approach that leads to substantially smaller, cleaner, safer and more energy-efficient process technology.

A hot topic across the chemical and process industries, this is the first book to provide a practical working guide to understanding and developing successful PI solutions that deliver savings and efficiencies. Inthe United Nations General Assembly adopted a sustainable development agenda as a universal call to action considering these three dimensions.

SDG 12 on Responsible Consumption and Production addresses the urgent need to promote resource and energy efficiency together with sustainability practices. The chemical sector is the largest industrial consumer of both oil and gas, accounting for 14% (13 mb/d) of total primary demand for oil and 8% ( bcm) of gas.

Despite being the largest industrial energy consumer, it is the third industry subsector in terms of direct CO2. Sustainable energy is the practice of using energy in a way that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.".

Meeting the world's needs for electricity, heating, cooling, and power for transport in a sustainable way is widely considered to be one of the greatest challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. Worldwide. Increased energy efficiency has provided the Nation with significant economic, environmental, and security benefits over the past 20 years.
