About the Course

Learn how to apply chemical engineering knowledge to further your bench-grade process and understand important chemical engineering principles including thermodynamics, material balance, reactor design, and more.

This course will be useful for those who need to negotiate and interact with chemical engineers and who need to appraise the industrial feasibility of their newly-conceived chemical process.

  • Material balance, transport phenomenon, thermodynamics, and process control
  • Cost engineering
  •  The chemical engineering design process

What You Will Learn

  • How to apply chemical engineering knowledge to further your bench-grade process: design a pilot, and participate in the design of a full scale layout.
  • Important chemical engineering principles–including thermodynamics, material balance, reactor design, separation processes, heat exchangers, scale-up techniques, pilot design, and simulation.
  • How to appraise the feasibility of a newly-formulated chemical process, estimate the cost of design, and construction of a pilot level and full-scale facility for your newly invented or modified chemical process.
  • How to negotiate with chemical engineers, oversee their design, and get the maximum benefit from their services.

Who Should Attend

Scientific professionals who wish to scale-up their bench process, build a pilot, and participate in designing a full-scale production line.
