Handbook of Petrochemicals Production Processes, Second Edition

by: Robert A. Meyers, Ph.D.


Abstract: A complete guide to petrochemicals production processes—fully revised to cover the latest advances. Get all the information you need on petrochemical processes for major organic chemicals inside this industry-standard one-stop reference. Prepared by leading petrochemicals licensing firms, Handbook of Petrochemicals Production Processes, Second Edition, clearly explains the powerful techniques used to create the most economically important chemicals in the world. The book offers cutting-edge production methods along with detailed product properties. You will discover how to effectively evaluate licensable processes for new production through the comparison of technologies, environmental factors, and economics. Coverage includes: • General process descriptions, feed definitions, product yields, and simplified flow diagrams • Process chemistries and thermodynamics • Commercial process perspectives, including plant locations and long-term plans • Process details, with flow diagrams and mass and energy balances for major process variations • Feeds and details on unique and key equipment • Brand-new details on gas-to-petrochemical conversion, biomass-to-petrochemical conversion, and bisphonal A (BPA)
