Rediscovering the Joys of Chemical Engineering - From Laboratory to Kitchen
A Platform for exchanging information and sharing ideas on matters of interest for both the active and aspiring CHEMICAL ENGINEER.
Haven't posted in a long time; this is actually my first post of this year. I want to share a link which provides a 5 minute primer on Hazardous Area Classification, a subject that many process engineers find technically challenging and confusing. This primer should help in clearing some cobwebs and stimulate further reading for a deeper understanding of the various codes and practices that are followed in the industry. There is considerable amount of theoretical understanding behind the practice of Hazardous Area Classification and I would like to see it included in undergraduate chemical engineering curricula. Industry should actively push this case to get "safety-primed" process engineers.
A new process for the manufacture of Ethylene and Propylene, the two main building blocks for petrochemicals, called Advanced Catalytic Olefins (ACO) Technology, is getting ready to go into commercial operation in the last quarter of this year.
