This book provides a holistic approach that looks at changing process conditions, possible process design changes, and process technology upgrades. It includes process integration techniques for improving process designs and for applying optimization techniques for improved operations, with a focus on hydroprocessing units. The authors also discuss all important aspects of hydroprocessing, including catalytic materials, reaction mechanism, as well as process design, operation and control, troubleshooting and optimization.
They introduce methods and tools that have a successful record of application at UOP and in many industrial plants. Purchasers of the book enjoy online access to relevant calculations/software/technologies.
