New book

book coverChemical Product Design is a response to major changes in the chemical industry that began occurring in the last decades. The industry is moving away from the manufacture of commodity chemicals towards the development of speciality chemical products and product design is the procedure by which customer needs are translated into those consumer products.

Chemical Product Design is also the name of the new book by Ed Cussler and Geoff Moggridge. Prof Ed Cussler is from the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, Institute of Technology, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis and Dr Geoff Moggridge is a Lecturer at the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Cambridge. Ed worked with us in Cambridge for the academic year 1998/9 as the Zeneca Senior Visiting Fellow, and during that year he and Geoff developed a course on Product Design.

Their ideas were presented at an IChemE education subject group meeting in 1999, "Is it process or product engineering?" The paper was entitled An Introduction to Chemical Product Design. At the same time, they began work on the book which has now been published.

The book has been reviewed in the issue of Chemistry and Industry published on 6 May 2002. The reviewer, Don Freshwater, a retired professor of Chemical Engineering, says "The authors are to be congratulated for bringing this important area to the forefront of chemical engineering".

Chemical Product Design by E L Cussler and G D Moggridge, published by Cambridge University Press is available from bookshops.
