Special Issue "Process Design, Integration, and Intensification"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018)
With the growing emphasis on enhancing the sustainability and efficiency of industrial plants, process integration and intensification are gaining additional interest throughout the chemical engineering community. Some of the hallmarks of process integration and intensification include a holistic perspective in design and the enhancement of material and energy intensity. The techniques can apply to individual unit operations, multiple units, a whole industrial facility, or even a cluster of industrial plants.
This Special Issue on “Process Design, Integration, and Intensification” aims to cover recent advances in the development and application of process integration and intensification. Topics include, but are not limited to, methods and/or application in the following areas:
- Systematic approaches to mass, energy, and property integration
- Unit and system intensification
- Conservation of natural resources
- Mitigation of environmental impact
- Techno-economic studies of emerging processes (e.g., shale gas monetization, biorefining)
- Integration of renewable energy in industrial processes
- Inherently safer design
- Metrics for assessing integration and/or intensification
- Eco-industrial parks

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1100 CHF (Swiss Francs). Please note that for papers submitted after 30 June 2019 an APC of 1200 CHF applies. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
