Petroleum Industry Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Petrochemicals Production Processes

by Robert A. Meyers


This unique reference is the only one-stop source for details on licensed petrochemical processes for the major organic chemicals, a $200 billion annual market.

Provides state-of-the-art coverage of:

  • General process descriptions, feed definitions, product yields, and simplified flow diagrams

  • Process chemistries and thermodynamics

  • Commercial process perspectives, including plant locations and long-term plans

  • Process details, with flow diagrams and mass and energy balances for major process variations

  • Feeds and details on unique and key equipment

With chapters prepared by some of the largest petrochemical and petroleum companies in the world, it provides in-depth process detail for commercial evaluation and covers plastics and polymers such as ethylene and polyethylene; propylene; ethylbenzene, styrene, and polystyrenes; vinyl chloride and polyvinyl chloride; and many others.
