Annotation -
Chemical engineering B is part of a two-semester course of Chemical Engineering for the Chemistry stream at the bachelor's level. It introduces key concepts of unit operations, their quantitative description, scale-up, and design in the context of industrial R&D. The course covers unit operations based on the momentum, heat and mass transfer, such as chemical reactors, separation processes (extraction, absorption, distillation, adsorption, membrane-based separations), particulate processes (agglomeration, milling), and finally with the basics concepts of process design.

Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

  • describe the principles of selected unit operations
  • carry out design and analytical calculations for these unit operations
  • make rational choice of process alternatives
