Taking greater advantage of powerful computing capabilities over the last several years, the development of fundamental information and new models has led to major advances in nearly every aspect of chemical engineering. Albright’s Chemical Engineering Handbook represents a reliable source of updated methods, applications, and fundamental concepts that will continue to play a significant role in driving new research and improving plant design and operations.

Well-rounded, concise, and practical by design, this handbook collects valuable insight from an exceptional diversity of leaders in their respective specialties. Each chapter provides a clear review of basic information, case examples, and references to additional, more in-depth information. They explain essential principles, calculations, and issues relating to topics including reaction engineering, process control and design, waste disposal, and electrochemical and biochemical engineering. The final chapters cover aspects of patents and intellectual property, practical communication, and ethical considerations that are most relevant to engineers.

From fundamentals to plant operations, Albright’s Chemical Engineering Handbook offers a thorough, yet succinct guide to day-to-day methods and calculations used in chemical engineering applications. This handbook will serve the needs of practicing professionals as well as students preparing to enter the field.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Professor Albright has done a fine job of bringing together a large number of contributions that cover the sector well. Many good examples are included throughout the text on the application of fundamental principles to engineering practice. This is a text that "grows" on a reader."

"…Several chapters in this (Albright’s) volume, particularly those on the fundamental aspects of fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, are written in a very "accessible" form that students and practitioners are likely to find very useful indeed. There are essential and well balanced chapters on patents and intellectual property and ethics, and there is sensible advice on communication. Overall, I would strongly recommend that libraries and departments in universities, as well as consultants and industrial engineers, purchase this book."

—Professor Tim Langrish, The University of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, in Drying Technology, Vol. 27, No. 6, 2009.
