Course Description

First, we overview the concept of environmentally benign chemical processing based on the causal relation between energy and environmental issues. Then, we discuss various new technologies for energy production and environmentally harmonized processes from the viewpoint of chemical engineering.


Coursework will be graded based on the reports.

Course Goals

To learn methodology for system-up of environmentally benign process based on energy and exergy. To consider perspective of biomass and hydrogen utilization. To understand several environmental evaluation methods.
