9780444527837: Adsorption, Ion Exchange and Catalysis: Design of Operations and Environmental Applications

Adsorption, Ion Exchange and Catalysis is essentially a mixture of environmental science and chemical reactor engineering. More specifically, three important heterogeneous processes, namely, adsorption, ion exchange and catalysis, are analysed, from fundamental kinetics to reactor design with emphasis on their environmental applications. In Chapter 1, the subject of air and water pollution is dealt with. Data about pollutants and emission sources are given and the treatment methods are shortly presented. In Chapter 2, the very basics and historical development of adsorption, ion exchange and catalysis are presented as well as their environmental applications. Chapter 3 is devoted to heterogeneous processes and reactor analysis. All types of reactors are described in depth and reactor modelling, hydraulics and mass/heat transfer phenomena are examined for each type of reactor. Chapters 4 and 5 are dedicated to adsorption & ion exchange and catalysis, respectively. The basic principles are presented including kinetics, equilibrium, mass/heat transfer phenomena as well as the analytical solutions of the reactor models presented in Chapter 3. In the sixth chapter, the subject of scale up is approached.
The two Annexes at the end of the book contain physical properties of substances of environmental interest as well as unit conversion tables. Finally, nearly all the examples contained are based on real experimental data found in literature with environmental interest. Most of the examples consider all aspects of operation design – kinetics, hydraulics and mass transfer.

* Provides basic knowledge of major environmental problems and connects them to chemical engineering

About the Author:

Dr. Stavros G. Poulopoulos has studied Chemical Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (Greece). He holds M.Sc. in Process Analysis and Plant Design and a second M.Sc. in the interdisciplinary field of Environment and Development. He conducted his Ph.D. research in the field of environmental protection. Specifically, his Thesis was entitled “Catalytic Oxidation of Oxygenated Organic Compounds in Exhaust Emissions . Subsequently, he conducted post-doc research for three years on the development of combined biological and chemical methods for the treatment of highly toxic wastewaters. He has conducted research for over 15 years on the treatment of gaseous emissions and toxic wastewaters. His work as an author includes more than 70 publications in the fields of Chemical Engineering and Environmental Science & Technology, which resulted in more than 700 citations. Moreover, he has co-authored one book on Adsorption, Ion Exchange and Catalysis (Elsevier) and has published also a chapter on the Gaseous Emissions and Pollution Prevention from the Incineration of Sewage Sludge (Nova). He has been acting as a reviewer for 22 international scientific journals. Besides his academic activities, he has offered his services as environmental specialist at the Hellenic Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks since 2007 and has cooperated with various companies. He has been working as an Associate Professor at the School of Chemical Engineering of Kazakh-British Technical University since 2013, teaching courses at the core of chemical engineering such as Chemical Reaction Engineering, Momentum Transfer, Heat & Mass Transfer, Plant and Processes Design, Chemical Engineering Lab., and Design of Chemical Utilities, at the undergraduate and master level. He is the editor along with Dr. Inglezakis of a new book entitled “Environment and Development. Basic Principles, Human Activities, and Environmental Implications. published by Elsevier in May 2016. The publication of this book has been a dream to come true for Dr. Poulopoulos.

Dr. Vassilis J. Inglezakis is Chemical Engineer graduated from the National Technical University of Athens (Greece) in 1996. He got his PhD degree on Chemical Engineering in the field of Pollution Abatement Technologies in 2002 and continued as post doc researcher on Environmental Science & Technology. Currently he is an Associate Professor at a new university in Central Asia with the responsibility of building a team of professors/students and top-notch research labs focused on Chemical Engineering and Environmental Science & Technology. He has more than 150 publications in the fields of Chemical Engineering and Environmental Science & Technology, his publications have received more than 1,450 citations and his Scopus h-index is 23. Dr. Inglezakis has a strong professional experience in environmental sector acquired by either leading or participating as expert in numerous international projects cooperating with private companies, public institutions and other stakeholders from local, regional and national level authorities in more than 15 countries. He has a consolidate experience in top-management positions as he has been Pre-Accession and Resident Advisor (Team Leader) in Slovakia (2004-2005) and Romania (2006-2007), in both countries for preparing the grounds for their European Union accession in the framework of European Union projects. Dr. Inglezakis has been TAIEX expert (institutional building, European Commission), project proposals evaluator for the European Commission (Erasmus Mundus, LIFE+ and ERANEMED programmes), the Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding (Romania), Russian Science Foundation and the National Center of Science and Technology Evaluation (Kazakhstan).
