Today, economic drivers are driving us towards the reduce, reuse, and recycle of materials, energy, solvents, water and the like in the design of our processes. This session will focus on such processes that while improving the economics of product manufacturing also ultimately leads to the improved sustainability of industrial processes. Papers from theoretical or practical contributions in all related areas are welcomed, such as technology innovation for environmentally benign manufacturing, process development for green products and sustainable alternative energy resources, emission reduction and energy savings, as well as the integration of sustainability analysis into process design and operations and supply chain management.
