Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chemical process technology is a broad area that brings together expertise in chemical engineering, chemistry and biotechnology, as well as project management, and the economic and environmental aspects of process and product development. This book provides an essential bridge between the chemical sciences and the chemical industry.

With a focus on actual industrial processes, e.g. the production of light alkenes, synthesis gas, fine chemicals, polyethene, it encourages the reader to think “out of the box” and invent and develop novel unit operations and processes. Reflecting today’s emphasis on sustainability, this edition contains new coverage of biomass as an alternative to fossil fuels, and process intensification.

The second edition includes:

  • New chapters on Process Intensification and Processes for the Conversion of Biomass
  • Updated and expanded chapters throughout with 35% new material overall
  • Text boxes containing case studies and examples from various different industries, e.g. synthesis loop designs, Sasol I Plant, Kaminsky catalysts, production of Ibuprofen, click chemistry, ammonia synthesis, fluid catalytic cracking
  • Questions throughout to stimulate debate and keep students awake!
  • Richly illustrated chapters with improved figures and flow diagrams

Chemical Process Technology Second Edition is a comprehensive introduction, linking the fundamental theory and concepts to the applied nature of the subject. It will be invaluable to students of chemical engineering, biotechnology and industrial chemistry, as well as practising chemical engineers.

Praise for the best-selling first edition

From The Chemist, Summer 2003

“The authors have blended process technology, chemistry and thermodynamics in an elegant manner…
Overall this is a welcome addition to books on chemical technology.”

From Chemistry in Britain (now Chemistry World), July 2001

“Impressively wide-ranging and comprehensive... an excellent textbook for students, with a combination of fundamental knowledge and technology.”

Synopsis:

Chemical Process Technology is a comprehensive introduction, examining both the fundamental concepts and applied nature of this subject. Modern process development relies on a knowledge of many different disciplines and an application and integration of this knowledge. Chemical Process Technology provides an essential bridge between the chemical sciences and the chemical industry. It enables the reader to integrate fundamental knowledge of the basic disciplines, to understand the most important chemical processes, and to apply this knowledge and understanding to industrial processes.

This innovative textbook examines both large-scale and small-scale chemical and biotechnology industries and aims to bring to life the concepts that form the basis of the process industry. Starting with a general look at the industry, subsequent chapters

examine different processes in greater detail. Emphasis tends to be placed on chemical reactions and the reactor, both at the heart of each process, but coverage also includes feed pre-treatment and product separation.

Features:

* A comprehensive and balanced introduction, providing an essential link between chemistry and the chemical industry

* Includes problems with their solutions to encourage a fuller understanding of the project.

* Many examples and case studies taken from a variety of modern industries

* Richly illustrated chapters, with many clearly developed flow diagrams and numerous figures

Chemical Process Technology will be invaluable to all students of chemical engineering, biotechnology and industrial chemistry who need a modern introduction to chemical reactions and processes. The book will also be of interest to researchers and professionals needing a concise, up-to-date text on this diverse subject.

Synopsis:

This text provides a comprehensive introduction to chemical process technology, linking the fundamental theory and concepts to the applied nature of the subject. It provides an essential bridge between the chemical sciences and the chemical industry. The book enables the reader to integrate fundamental knowledge of the basic disciplines, to understand the most important chemical processes, and to apply this knowledge and understanding to industrial processes.

Starting with a general look at the chemical industry, subsequent chapters examine different processes in greater detail, for example, oil refinery, steam cracking, synthesis gas, power, bulk chemicals, biorefinery, biotechnology, gas treatment, catalysis, fine chemicals, process intensification, and chip technology. In all chapters the processes treated are represented by simplified flow schemes, to help the reader think in terms of conceptual process designs. Problems and “feature boxes” giving examples and real-life industrial case studies are scattered throughout the text.

Key features:

  • New edition of a best-selling established text from highly-regarded authors
  • Offers a comprehensive and balanced introduction, providing an essential link between chemistry and the chemical industry
  • New coverage of energy and fuels from biomass, and biorefineries, to reflect growth areas in industry
  • Includes problems to encourage a fuller understanding of the subject
  • Contains richly-illustrated chapters with clearly developed flow diagrams and figures
  • “Feature Boxes”  appear throughout the text, providing examples and case studies from a variety of different industries
  • Website provides PowerPoint slides of figures for lecturers

New to this edition:

  • A complete update of chapters in the existing book
  • More questions
  • 2 new chapters: Processes for the Conversion of Biomass (chapter 7), Process Intensification (chapter 14)
