File Synopsis: Various chemical substances are used in industry as product materials and process chemicals. As issues related to the environment and human health are considered important, possible risks of production processes need to be identified and reduced at the process design stage (Cano-Ruiz and McRae, 1998; Chen and Shonnard, 2004). Organic solvents are used for many purposes, e.g., as cleansing agents in metal cleaning processes and as components of inks and paints in printing and painting processes. Some organic solvents have been an issue of public concern in Japan owing to their human toxicity and contribution to air pollution (METI-Kanto, 2009). Download file...
