Product Description

Review

“… Offers a 21st century perspective on the development of petroleum refining technologies. This volume traces the science of petroleum from its subterranean formation to physicochemical properties and the production of numerous products and petrochemical intermediates. Presenting nearly 50 percent new material, this edition emphasizes novel refining approaches that optimize efficiency and throughput. It includes new chapters on heavy oil and tar sand bitumen recovery; deasphalting and dewaxing processes, and environmental aspects of refining, including refinery wastes, regulations and analysis. This text also features revised and expanded coverage of instability and incompatibility, refinery distillation, thermal cracking, hydrotreating and desulfurization, hydrocracking, as well as hydrogen production.”
— In Anticancer Research, Vol. 27, No. 3B, May/June 2007

A wonderful book. There are several overlapping topics discussed and to different extents by separate authors of chapters in the book. Some central editing my be required to remove duplications. It meets my needs as a teacher and of my students as a reference book. Though a hard copy, the binding is fragile.
