  • Book

  • September 2021
  • Elsevier Science and Technology
  • ID: 5308628

A Practical Approach to Chemical Engineering for Non-Chemical Engineers is aimed at people who are dealing with chemical engineers or those who are involved in chemical processing plants. The book demystifies complicated chemical engineering concepts through daily life examples and analogies. It contains many illustrations and tables that facilitate quick and in-depth understanding of the concepts handled in the book. By studying this book, practicing engineers (non-chemical), professionals, technicians and other skilled workers will gain a deeper understanding of what chemical engineers say and ask for.

The book is also useful for engineering students who plan to get into chemical engineering and want to know more on the topic and any related jargon.
