New book published by UNM Academic

A book entitled “Process Integration for Carbon Management Network” was recently published by an internationally renowned publisher – CRC Press.  This book was written by an academic of the University of Nottingham Malaysia – Professor Ir Dr Dominic CY Foo and his long-term collaborator Professor Raymond Tan.  Professor Foo is the Professor of Process Design and Integration, while Professor Raymond Tan is the University Fellow and Deputy Vice Chancellor of De La Salle University, Philippines.  Professor Tan who is also a member of the Philippines National Academy of Science and Technology visits the University of Nottingham Malaysia regularly and has delivered various workshops and talks in the past decade.

“Since the inception of carbon emission pinch analysis technique in 2007, many international scholars have been using this technique for energy planning in their countries to address sustainable development problem.  Hence, we hope that this book will serve as a good guide for other energy planners,” Professor Foo said.


About the book

The new book “Process Integration for Carbon Management Network” provides a comprehensive treatment of carbon emissions pinch analysis (CEPA), covering the fundamentals as well as more advanced variants based on mathematical programming. A significant portion of the book is dedicated to case studies that provide a range of examples demonstrating how CEPA can be applied to practical energy-planning problems.
