This seminar presents the scientific principles and applications in the heavy chemical industry such as refineries, plastics production, and petrochemicals by examining all procedures involved. Sub operations are described and analyzed with means of both underlying science and applied methodologies. Devices, materials and procedures are covered in depth and the use of process simulation tools aids the attendants in fully comprehending principles and applications. This course covers 40 CPD hours.
