Resumen (en inglés): This book is based on the extensive experience of the authors in the field of industry, teaching and writing. The textbook showcases methods, problems, and tools used in this well-established field of chemical engineering and goes beyond traditional process engineering by applying the same principles to biomedical processes, energy production, and management of environmental issues. Starting from the behavior of processes, this book explains all determinations in "chemical systems" or "process systems", such as the intricate inter dependency of the process stages, analyzing the hardware components of a control system, and the design of an appropriate control system for a process parameter or a whole process. Although mainly aimed at students and graduates, the book is equally interesting to chemical or process engineers in all industries or research and development centers.
