WHAT PEOPLE SAY
ABOUT THE BOOK
The book titled “Mihir’s Handbook of Chemical Process Engineering” will aid the chemical engineer to carry out chemical process engineering in a very practical way. The process engineer can use the excel based calculation templates effectively to do correct and proper process design. Chemical engineering is a very vast and complex field. This book aims to simplify the process engineering design.
Design of a chemical plant involves one being adept in technical aspects of process engineering. This chemical engineering book aims at making the chemical engineer proficient in the art of process design.
