Course description and aims

[Summary of the course] This course will provide some reviews of the chemical engineering science and brush them up by dealing with the issues of utilization of material and energy resources. Also, the students will learn about the innovation and development made in chemical processing units to enhance efficient use of materials and energy. For students at the other undergraduate majors, this course provides the opportunity to learn advanced science and technology as well as fundamentals in the fields of chemical engineering.
[Aim of the course] The aim of the course is to provide an opportunity to discuss how to make efficient use of resources and energy, and utilize recycling from the chemical engineering point of view. Furthermore, lectures are presented to consider how individual process units have been developed and innovated in order to realize more efficient use of materials and energy.

Student learning outcomes

By taking this course, students can
1) understand the present situation about the efficient utilization and recycle technologies of materials and energy related to the environment.
2) understand how process intensification contributes to more efficient use of materials and energy
