This handbook answers questions on yields, unit operations, chemical and physical values, economics, and much more.

Look inside this outstanding reference for state-of-the-art coverage of:

* General process descriptions, feed definitions, product yields, and simplified flow diagrams

* Process chemistries and thermodynamics

* Commercial process perspectives, including plant locations and long-term plans

* Process details, with flow diagrams and mass and energy balances for major process variations

* Feeds and details on unique and key equipment
