Specific course information

The objective of the course is to present the fundamentals of the processes of physical transformation from raw materials into products in industry. Also attention is given to the analysis of equipment and the consumption of materials, energy and other resources to identify eventual opportunities of improvement and optimization in terms of performance, efficiency and quality.

Specific goals of the course

Learning objectives:
  • To define the variables state of the materials intervening in processes.
  • To describe the unit operations of the process industry.
  • To describe and design block diagrams of representing industrial processes.
  • To formulate and solve mass balances in industrial processes.
  • To formulate and solve energy balances in industrial processes.
