Industrial Chemical Process Analysis and Design uses chemical engineering principles to explain the transformation of basic raw materials into major chemical products. The book discusses traditional processes to create products like nitric acid, sulphuric acid, ammonia, and methanol, as well as more novel products like bioethanol and biodiesel. Historical perspectives show how current chemical processes have developed over years or even decades to improve their yields, from the discovery of the chemical reaction or physico-chemical principle to the industrial process needed to yield commercial quantities. Starting with an introduction to process design, optimization, and safety, Martin then provides stand-alone chapters—in a case study fashion—for commercially important chemical production processes. Computational software tools like MATLAB®, Excel, and Chemcad are used throughout to aid process analysis. Integrates principles of chemical engineering, unit operations, and chemical reactor engineering to understand process synthesis and analysis Combines traditional computation and modern software tools to compare different solutions for the same problem Includes historical perspectives and traces the improving efficiencies of commercially important chemical production processes Features worked examples and end-of-chapter problems with solutions to show the application of concepts discussed in the text

While chemical products are useful in their own right—they address the demands and needs of the masses—they also drain our natural resources and generate unwanted pollution. Green Chemical Engineering: An Introduction to Catalysis, Kinetics, and Chemical Processes encourages minimized use of non-renewable natural resources and fosters maximized pollution prevention. This text stresses the importance of developing processes that are environmentally friendly and incorporate the role of green chemistry and reaction engineering in designing these processes. Focused on practical application rather than theory, the book integrates chemical reaction engineering and green chemical engineering, and is divided into two sections. The first half of the book covers the basic principles of chemical reaction engineering and reactor design, while the second half of the book explores topics on green reactors, green catalysis, and green processes. The authors mix in elaborate illustrations along with important developments, practical applications, and recent case studies. They also include numerous exercises, examples, and problems covering the various concepts of reaction engineering addressed in this book, and provide MATLAB® software used for developing computer codes and solving a number of reaction engineering problems. Consisting of six chapters organized into two sections, this text: Covers the basic principles of chemical kinetics and catalysis Gives a brief introduction to classification and the various types of chemical reactors Discusses in detail the differential and integral methods of analysis of rate equations for different types of reactions Presents the development of rate equations for solid catalyzed reactions and enzyme catalyzed biochemical reactions Explains methods for estimation of kinetic parameters from batch reactor data Details topics on homogeneous reactors Includes graphical procedures for the design of multiple reactors Contains topics on heterogeneous reactors including catalytic and non-catalytic reactors Reviews various models for non-catalytic gas–solid and gas–liquid reactions Introduces global rate equations and explicit design equations for a variety of non-catalytic reactors Gives an overview of novel green reactors and the application of CFD technique in the modeling of green reactors Offers detailed discussions of a number of novel reactors Provides a brief introduction to CFD and the application of CFD Highlights the development of a green catalytic process and the application of a green catalyst in the treatment of industrial effluent Comprehensive and thorough in its coverage, Green Chemical Engineering: An Introduction to Catalysis, Kinetics, and Chemical Processes explains the basic concepts of green engineering and reactor design fundamentals, and provides key knowledge for students at technical universities and professionals already working in the industry.

The document Chemical Process Simulation and the Aspen HYSYS v8.3 Software is a self-paced instructional manual that aids students in learning how to use a chemical process simulator and how a process simulator models material balances, phase equilibria, and energy balances for chemical process units. The student learning is driven by the development of the material and energy requirements for a specific chemical process flowsheet. This semester-long, problem-based learning activity is intended to be a student-based independent study, with about two-hour support provided once a week by a student teaching assistant to answer any questions.Chapter 1 of this HYSYS manual provides an overview of the problem assignment to make styrene monomer from toluene and methanol. Chapter 2 presents ten tutorials to introduce the student to the HYSYS simulation software. The first six of these tutorials can be completed in a two-week period for the introductory chemical engineering course. The other four are intended for the senior-level design course. Chapter 3 provides five assignments to develop the student's abilities and confidence to simulate individual process units using HYSYS. These five assignments can be completed over a three-week period. Chapter 4 contains seven assignments to develop the styrene monomer flowsheet. These seven assignments can be completed over a seven-week period. In Chapter 4, each member of a four-, five-, or six-member team begins with the process reactor unit for a specifically-assigned temperature, molar conversion, and yield. Subsequent assignments increase the complexity of the flowsheet by adding process units, one by one, until the complete flowsheet with recycle is simulated in HYSYS. The team's objective is to determine the operating temperature for the reactor, such that the net profit is maximized before considering federal taxes. Finally, eleven appendices provide mathematical explanations of how HYSYS does its calculations for various process units-process stream, stream tee, stream mixer, pump, valve, heater/cooler, chemical reactor, two-phase separator, three-phase separator, component splitter, and simple distillation.This HYSYS manual can be used with most textbooks for the introductory course on chemical engineering, like Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes (Felder and Rousseau, 2005), Basic Principles and Calculations in Chemical Engineering (Himmelblau and Riggs, 2004), or Introduction to Chemical Processes: Principles, Analysis, Synthesis (Murphy, 2007). It can also be used as a refresher for chemical engineering seniors in their process engineering design course. Because the HYSYS manuscript was compiled using Adobe Acrobat(r), it contains many web links. Using a supplied web address and Acrobat Reader(r), students can electronically access the web links that appear in many of the chapters. These web links access Aspen HYSYS(r), Acrobat PDF(r), Microsoft Word(r), and Microsoft Excel(r) files that appear in many of chapters. Students can view but not copy or print the electronic version of the HYSYS manual.
