Chemical Projects Scale Up: How to Go from Laboratory to Commercial covers the chemical engineering steps necessary for taking a laboratory development into the commercial world. The book includes the problems associated with scale up, equipment sizing considerations, thermal characteristics associated with scale up, safety areas to consider, recycling considerations, operability reviews and economic viability. In addition to the process design aspects of commercializing the laboratory development, consideration is given to the utilization of a development in an existing plant.
- Explains how heat removal for exothermic reactions can be scaled up
- Outlines how a reactor can be sized from batch kinetic data
- Discusses how the plant performance of a new catalyst can be evaluated
- Presents how the economics of a new product/process can be developed
- Discusses the necessary evaluation of recycling in commercial plants
