Summary: This book is intended to serve as an introduction to the principles and techniques used in the field of chemical engineering as well as biological, petroleum, and environmental engineering. Although the range of subjects deemed to be in the province of chemical engineering has broadened over the last twenty years, the basic principles of this field of study remain the same. This book present the foundation of specific skills and information that are required for the successful undergraduate and postgraduate study of chemical engineering as well as the professional practice of chemical engineering.
