  • Rate-Controlled Separations

    Separations have always been very important in chemical engineering. This importance has escalated with the emergence of new industries in biotechnology and high performance materials. Separations will continue to remain important in bulk chemical manufacturing, petroleumprocessing, and the other standard areas of interest in chemical ...

  • Mathematical Theory of Oil and Gas Recovery

    This book comprises a new mathematical study of multiphase multicomponent flows in heterogeneous porous media. The goal is to develop analytical models of the recovery processes from heterogeneous reservoirs based on the exact analytical solutions of equations of flow in porous media. The analytical models developed describe chemical and hot ...

  • Location Based Services and TeleCartography

    This book presents a general picture of research-driven activities related to location- and map-based services. This type of research has emerged in recent years in the areas of positioning, spatial modeling, and cartographic communication as well as in the emerging fields of ubiquitous cartography, geopervasive services and user-centered ...

  • Ocean Processes in Climate Dynamics: Global and Mediterranean Examples

    One of the most crucial but still very poorly understood topics of oceanographic science is the role of ocean processes in contributing to the dynamics of climate and global change. This book presents a series of high level lectures on the major categories of ocean/atmosphere processes. Three of these major issues are the focus of the ...

  • Combined and Hybrid Adsorbents

    The recent environmental concerns as well as the struggle against chemical terrorism demand new protection technologies and/or improvement of existing ones, e.g., adsorption. Adsorption is an established industrial separation technique used both in bulk separations and purifications, and is particularly suited for the solution of those problems. ...

  • Naturally-Produced Organohalogens

    Should the production and use of chlorine and all chlorinated organic compounds be halted, in view of their adverse effects on the environment and human health? Those in favour argue that certain chlorinated compounds (PCBs, DDT, CFCs, etc.) have large negative environmental effects. The use of chlorine in disinfectants leads to the ...

  • The Microbiology of Activated Sludge

    Waste water treatment is the largest biotechnology industry in the world, handling and disposing of domestic and industrial wastes so they present no threat to the general populace or the environment at large.
