Section III. Synthesis and Optimization of Chemical Processes

In this section, the problems of how to create, simulate, and optimize a process and how to develop a process flow diagram (PFD) are addressed. In order to create a PFD, a considerable amount of information needs to be gathered. This includes reaction kinetics, thermodynamic property data, required purity for products and by-products, types of separations to be used in the process, reactor type, range of conditions for the reaction, and many others. Once this information has been gathered, it must be synthesized into a working process. In order to accommodate the synthesis of information, the chemical engineer relies on solving material balances, energy balances, and equilibrium relationships ...
