ChemEng@Cam continues to lead the way in Chemical Product Engineering

A website, developed by Raquel Costa, giving case studies of Chemical Product Design, has recently gone live. This project, supervised by Geoff Moggridge, was sponsored by the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre, who are hosting the website. It is hoped that further contributions will expand the range of case studies available. The website is aimed at both students and academics teaching courses related to Chemical Product Engineering.

This follows a recent clutch of articles by Moggridge and Costa on Chemical Product Engineering, which have broadened the scope set by Moggridge and Cussler in their 2001 text, "Chemical Product Design":

  • "Chemical Product Engineering - An Emerging Paradigm within Chemical Engineering" R. Costa, G.D. Moggridge and P.M. Saraiva, AIChEJ 52(6) (2006) 1976-1986. doi: 10.1002/aic.10880
  • "Chemical Product Engineering - A Future Paradigm" R. Costa, G.D. Moggridge and P.M. Saraiva, CEP (Aug 2006) 10-13.
  • "Chemical Product Engineering - The Future?" R. Costa, G.D. Moggridge and P.M. Saraiva, TCE (Nov 2006) 25-27.
