This volume of Chemical Engineering Transactions puts together the latest research in Process Integration for Energy Saving and Pollution Reduction, developed and completed during the last year (2022-2023). In addition to the efforts for developing Circular Economy solutions, much of the research is dedicated to further increasing processing and energy efficiency, inspired by the unfolding economic challenges and military conflicts. This volume contains articles dedicated to heat recovery and energy efficiency, CO2 capture and sequestration, sustainable building materials, solar heating and cooling, clean combustion, hydrogen storage, clean biofuel production, clean energy harvesting and storage, clean agriculture, waste minimisation and Circular Economy. The emphasis is on system optimisation, energy issues, process simulation, hydrogen, energy management and storage, network optimisation, process integration, and environmental issues.
