Knowledge: The main objective of the course is to provide students with the general criteria useful for an industrial chemical process planning and with the fundamental concepts that must be taken into account in designing a plant. To this aim, some industrial chemical processes are described and analyzed in terms of thermodynamic and kinetic aspects and are also highlighted the most important technology. Problems associated with the cost, sustainability and safety of an industrial process are also discussed.
Applying knowledge and understanding: students will acquire the ability to analyze thermodynamically and kinetically an industrial process, highlighting the most important aspects and technological solutions. They will also acquire concepts related to environmental and economic sustainability of a process.
