Section II. Engineering Economic Analysis of Chemical Processes

Section II. Engineering Economic Analysis of Chemical Processes

This section concentrates on the evaluation of the economics of a chemical process. In order for a chemical engineer or cost engineer to evaluate the economic impact of a new (or existing) chemical process, certain technical information must be available. Although this information is gleaned from a variety of sources, it is generally presented in the form of the technical diagrams discussed in Chapter 1.

In the chapters of this section, methods to evaluate the economics of a chemical process are covered. The term economics refers to the evaluation of capital costs and operating costs associated with the construction and operation of a chemical process. The methods by which the one-time costs associated with the construction of the plant and the continuing costs associated with the daily operation of the process are combined into meaningful economic criteria are provided.
