Green Engineering Tutorial


Hui Chen (Arizona State University)
David Shonnard (Michigan Technological University)


Green Engineering is defined as the design, commercialization, and use of processes and products that are feasible and economical while minimizing risk to human health and the environment. This tutorial contains a detailed description of a systematic methodology for the design of greener and more profitable chemical processes. Concepts and methods that are suited for both early design screening assessments as well as thorough evaluations of detailed designs are presented. A tutorial is included with step-by-step instructions on the use of computer software for environmentally-conscious design. The software also includes algorithms for flowsheet costing as well as multi-criteria decision making. A case study comparing production of maleic anhydride from either n-butane or benzene is used to illustrate concepts and application of the software. This green engineering tutorial will benefit capstone design course instructors and students in chemical engineering, environmental engineering, pulp and paper science and engineering, and mineral processing. Computer programs used in the materials are available from David Shonnard at
