Featured Content: Book Release

Our textbook titled Sustainable Process Engineering has recently been published. The inspiration for this book arose from my university teachings on sustainability and green engineering. In this textbook, you will find an engaging and interesting reference guide on sustainability that will provide you with a solid foundation in this exciting field of science. I am indebted to all my students and colleagues, and particularly grateful to Diana Gulyas Oldal, Gergo Ignacz and Martin Gede, who have made a tremendous effort in both the logistics and writing of this book; many thanks go to them for all their hard work.

You can purchase the book directly from the publisher, or from Amazon.

 

Featured Content: Front cover for Green Chemistry

Check out our new open access article on hydrophobic thin film composite nanofiltration membranes derived solely from sustainable sources on the front cover of Green Chemistry published by the Royal Society of Chemistry. Congratulations to Sang-Hee Park, the first author of the article, for putting this work together in a successful interdisciplinary collaboration with the group of Prof. Nunes.
