Basics of the Chemical Industry Course

Introduction

The chemical industry value chain is complex. In this course, you’ll gain a high-level review of the manufacture and markets for important products and intermediates, including simplified equipment flow diagrams. Throughout the course, you’ll make the connections from raw basic materials to components into the consumer market.

You’ll start with a brief review of important polymers - the end game for much of our industry. Then, you’ll look at characterizing fossil fuels - oil, gas and coal - and their abundance and markets. You’ll discuss biomass as a chemical feedstock and steam crackers before turning to chemical derivatives from coal and natural gas, such as methanol, acetic acid and others. You’ll also consider derivatives from ethylene, propylene, mixed C4 streams, and aromatics. The course concludes with a review of other important processes such as ammonia and chlor-alkali.

Duration

5 Days

Who Should Attend

Process engineers, chemists, market managers, and those new to the chemical industry. If you’re familiar with chemical structures and basic unit operations, this is an opportunity to build on and expand your knowledge.
