Language of instruction English
* To determine the yield, conversion and selectivity of chemical reactions
* To know some typical chemical industrial unit operations and their application
* To complete energy and mass balances in flowsheets
* To perform some calculations on chemical reactions
* To discuss a circularity challenge of the chemical industry
Many daily used products contain materials produced in industrial chemical plants. "Chemical engineering" studies the development, design, operation and improvement of these chemical plants, their chemical and physical processes and their economical feasibility.
This course will introduce students to the challenges of the modern chemical engineer, in which basic chemical and physical concepts, like material/heat balances, process design and typical unit operations, will be combined with discussions on sustainability/circularity and business consequences, like pay back times.
