    ABSTRACT: In the past decades, process engineers are facing increasingly more data analytics challenges and having difficulties obtaining valuable information from a wealth of process variable data trends. The raw data of different formats stored in databases are not useful until they are cleaned and transformed. Generally, data cleaning consists of four steps: missing data imputation, outlier detection, noise removal, and time alignment and delay estimation. This paper discusses available data cleaning methods that can be used in data pre-processing and help overcome challenges of "Big Data".

    ABSTRACT: Tissue engineering has evolved into an exciting area of research due to its potential in regenerative medicine. The shortage of organ donor as well as incompatibility between patient and donor pose an alarming concern. This has resulted in an interest in regenerative therapy where the importance of understanding the transport properties of critical nutrients such as glucose in numerous tissue engineering membranes and scaffolds is crucial. This is due to its dependency on successful tissue growth as a measure of potential cure for health issues that cannot be healed using traditional medical treatments. In this regard, the diffusion of glucose in membranes and scaffolds which act as templates to support cell growth must be well grasped. Keeping this in mind, this review paper aims to discuss the glucose diffusivity of these materials. The paper reviews four interconnected issues, namely, (i) the glucose diffusion in tissue engineering materials, (ii) porosity and tortuosity of these materials, (iii) the relationship between microstructure of the material and diffusion and, (iv) estimation of glucose diffusivities in liquids, which determine the effective diffusivities in the porous membranes or scaffolds. It is anticipated that the review paper would help improve the understanding of the transport properties of glucose in membranes and scaffolds used in tissue engineering applications.

    ABSTRACT: Circulation half-life has become one of the major design considerations in nanoparticle drug delivery systems. By taking cues for designing long circulating carriers from natural entities such as red blood cells (RBCs) has been explored for many years. Among all the cellular carriers including leukocytes, fibroblasts, islets, and hepatocytes, RBCs offer several distinctive features. The present review underlines a discussion on the applications of different RBC carriers (RBC mimics) which can evade the body’s reticuloendothelial system overcoming many barriers such as size, shape, accelerated blood clearance, mechanical properties, control over particle characteristics, and surface chemistry. Bilayer membrane liposomes infusing phospholipids have long been synthesized to mimic bioconcave RBC carriers using the notion of stealth liposomes. This is not a comprehensive review; some illustrative examples are given on how they are currently obtained. A special attention is devoted to the RBC mimics from polymers, red cell membrane ghosts, and the red cell membrane enclosing polymeric cores as potential drug carriers. The present research reveals the achievement of RBC surface charge to accord with the immune system as a game of hide and seek in a much promising way in the light of its pharmaceutical applications.

    ABSTRACT: Most of the oleochemical industries use glycerol as raw material for its adverse commercial applications in various fields. In spite of many available methods to produce glycerol from tallow, hydrolysis is one of the most feasible and widely used methods that draw the attention of doing more research for ensuring the safe operation, production level improvement, and accuracy of the synthesis process. The synthesis using biochemical methods in immobilized packed column lacks fastness compared to that of chemical means, which is enriched with more research problems. To attain inherent safety, improved process control methods need to be designed, which requires the knowledge of transient dynamics and sensitivity analysis of the process. This paper gives a state-of-the-art review of experimental analysis, mathematical modeling, parametric identification, and integrated control systems using sensors, actuators, and respective multiloop controllers for the production of glycerol and fatty acids from tallow fat through chemical/biochemical hydrolysis.
