Translating fundamental principles into day-to-day engineering concepts, this reference provides the tools to accurately measure process efficiency and sustainability in the power and chemical industries. It helps engineers recognize why losses occur and how they can be reduced utilizing familiar thermodynamic principles. It also compares the present industrial society with an emerging metabolic society in which mass production and consumption are in closer harmony with the natural environment. The book uses classic thermodynamic principles for clear understanding, analysis, and optimization of workflows, environmental resources, and driving forces in the chemical and power industries.
