Product-driven process design - from molecule to enterprise provides process engineers and process engineering students with access to a modern and stimulating methodology to process and product design.
Throughout the book the links between product design and process design become evident while the reader is guided step-by-step through the different stages of the intertwining product and process design activities. Both molecular and enterprise-wide considerations in design are introduced and addressed in detail. Several examples and case studies in emerging areas such as bio- and food-systems, pharmaceuticals and energy are discussed and presented. This book is an excellent guide and companion for undergraduate, graduate students as well as professional practitioners.
Professor Edwin Zondervan obtained his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering in 2007 from Twente University and University of Groningen (Netherlands). Afterwards he was visiting researcher at the Technical University in Lyngby (Denmark) and at the Imperial College in London (UK). Between 2007 and 2015 he was working as assistant professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands. Currently, he holds a professorship at the University of Bremen (Germany) for Process Systems Engineering. Besides research (he published over 100 articles, chapters and patents) Edwin Zondervan has been very active in the educational gremials where he trained many generations of students in process design, process control and numerical methods. For the latter one Edwin published a textbook that was released in 2014: "A numerical primer for the chemical engineer".
