The aim of the course is the application of chemical engineering for design and calculations of equipment used in refineries and fuel processing industry. Characteristics of unit operations, their basic principles, and principles of calculations are subject of study. Special attention is paid to the properties of streams (crude oil and petroleum fractions) and other specific aspects of unit operations used in refinery processes.
