Description

This popular textbook combines the four disciplines of chemical technology: chemistry, thermal and mechanical unit operations, chemical reaction engineering and general chemical technology. The second edition is updated to include the new developments in the field, including additional examples of industrial processes and topics like power-to-x and hydrogen storage. The part on "Inorganic Products" is expanded to include additional metals as well as glass and ceramics. There is also new content on water consumption and pollution.
