In the field of chemical engineering, this book is an unique combination of design methodology and the current chemical engineering practice. Besides that it integrates sustainable development into the chemical engineering field, which is not been done before.
Gijsbert Korevaar has studied Chemical Engineering at the Delft University of Technology. He graduated in 1998 at the Laboratory for Inorganic Chemistry. He worked as research fellow in that laboratory until July 1999. From July 1999 to July 2003 he was PhD Student in the group Process Systems Engineering, also in the Delft University of Technology. At this moment, he is the coordinator of a new master of science curriculum entitled Industrial Ecology, which results from a joint venture between Delft University of Technology, Leiden University and Erasmus University Rotterdam.
