This textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to chemical process engineering, linking the fundamental theory and concepts to the industrial day-to-day practice. It bridges the gap between chemical sciences and the practical chemical industry. It enables the reader to integrate fundamental knowledge of the basic disciplines, to understand the most important chemical processes, and to apply this knowledge to the practice in the industry.
Addresses a conundrum: Academics lacking appreciation of industrial concerns and industrial chemists blaming academics for not teaching applied chemistry
Connects theory as taught in academia with industrial practice
Important material for all students considering a chemical career

"[…] I can strongly recommend it not only to all students that get close to their degree, but also to engineers and scientists that just started their industrial career […]. The book is like an investment." Prof. Dr.-Ing. Claus Fleischer, Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences
