Overview

Chemical process design involves the invention or synthesis of a process to transform raw materials into a desired product. Using a minimum of mathematics,this book offers chemical engineers a complete guide to selecting and connecting the steps for a well-designed process. Flowsheet synthesis,the choice of reactor and separator,distillation sequencing,and economic trade-offs are explored in detail. Special emphasis is placed on energy efficiency,waste minimization,and health and safety considerations,with worked examples and case studies presented to illustrate important points.
