Chemical ProcessesA major focus of Processes is chemical process engineering with applications to both traditional industries and emerging industries for renewable chemicals and energy production. The Special Issue contains four papers in this area. The first paper describes the development and simulation of a model prediction controller for achieving the desired viscosity curve in the continuous production of a non-Newtonian fluid . The second paper addresses the problem of minimizing fuel consumption in fuel gas networks through a superstructure-based method and mixed-integer nonlinear programming . The interesting possibility of extending the favorable characteristics of cuboid packed-bed devices originally designed for chromatographic separations to packed-bed chemical reactors is explored in the third paper . The fourth paper addresses the optimal design of ammonia production plants based on adsorption for unreacted nitrogen and hydrogen recovery and wind energy for electricity generation .
