A SEF Webinar
SEF Webinar
Originally delivered Jun 1, 2011

This webinar presents highlights and insights from the recently published book Sustainable Development in the Process Industries: Cases and Impact (John Wiley & Sons, 2010), which describes case studies and real world examples of application of the principles of sustainability in the development and implementation of commercial projects. The overview includes sustainability metrics, byproduct synergy and industrial symbiosis, resource efficiency, regional integration, cleaner production, sustainable process integration, bio-based fuels and chemicals, bioleaching, as well as a historical review of the chemical industry and its role in responding to societal needs. The presentation weaves these themes together into a high level perspective on how sustainability principles have, and are being translated into, action.
