This book is intended primarily for the students preparing for diploma, B.E/B.Tech, and other engineering examinations.The arrangement of chapters is classified into the six sections of the book 
These sections are as follows:
• Section I—Conceptualization and Analysis of Chemical Processes
• Section II—Engineering Economic Analysis of Chemical Processes
• Section III—Synthesis and Optimization of Chemical Processes
• Section IV—Analysis of Process Performance
• Section V—The Impact of Chemical Engineering Design on Society
• Section VI—Interpersonal and Communication Skills
In Section I, the student is introduced first to the principal diagrams that are used to describe a chemical process. Next, the evolution and generation of different process configurations are covered.Key concepts used in evaluating batch processes are included in Chapter 3, and the concepts of product design are given in Chapter 4. Finally, the analysis of existing processes is covered. In Section II, the information needed to assess the economic feasibility of a process is covered. This includes the estimation of fixed capital investment and manufacturing costs, the concepts of the time value of money and financial calculations, and finally the combination of these costs into profitability measures for the process. Section III covers the synthesis of a chemical process. The minimum information required to simulate a process is given, as are the basics of using a process simulator.
The choice of the appropriate thermodynamic model to use in a simulation is covered, and the choice of separation operations is covered. Process optimization (including an introduction to optimization of batch processes) and heat integration techniques are covered in this section. In addition, new material on advanced concepts using steady-state process simulators (Chapter 16) and the use of dynamic simulators (Chapter 17) has been added, and the chapter on process regulation has been expanded and rounds out Section III. In Section IV, the analysis of the performance of existing processes and equipment is covered. The material in Section 4 is substantially different from that found in most textbooks. We consider equipment that is already built and operating and analyze how the operation can be changed, how an operating problem may be solved, and how to analyze what has occurred in the process to cause an observed change. In Section V, the impact of chemical engineering design on society is covered. The role of the professional engineer in society is addressed. Separate chapters addressing ethics and professionalism, health, safety, and the environment, and green engineering are included. Finally, in Section VI, the interpersonal skills required by the engineer to function as part of a team and to communicate both orally and in written form. An entire chapter is devoted to addressing some of the common mistakes that students make in written reports.
