Short description:

The aim of this lecture is the chemical processes presentation in the commercial-scale units. Lecture introduces some elements of chemical engineering.. The course gives knowledge on raw materials for Polish chemical industry, as well as its main branches and processes structures. Lecture gives basic knowledge on chemical industry waste, and presents the environment protection treatment.

Full description:

The course covers physicochemical background of technological processes. Are presented the following topics: technical, economical and environmental factors in large-scale processes, elements of chemical engineering and chemical processes control, unit operations and processes realized in periodic and continuous mode, chemical reactors, material and energy balances, Sankey’s diagrams – material and energy balances visualization.

Lecture introduces elements of industrial catalysis and hydrocarbon polymer chemistry. Examples of large-scale plastic production processes are given.

This course introduces students to selected technology of inorganic and organic products. The special attention is given to new material technology, environmental impact of chemical industry processes.
