Introduction chapter : must include

a. product to be manufactured,
b. its chemical formula,
c. role of the product in industry,
d. significance in trade
e. selection of manufacturing route with justification
f. choice of production level and location
g. reasons for entering market
h. overview of environmental issues including safety and toxicity of product

Detailed Process Flow diagram (PFD) and material balances in form of

stream summary table:
PFD should show temperature and pressure of each stream and also include the
nomenclature to all equipment on PFD and stream numbers. The stream summary table
should show total flow rate in each stream along with the species flow rate. Do not present
calculations here. All calculations must appear in
appendix. Also temperature, pressure, enthalpy, density and other properties that
may be needed in the calculations should be included in the stream summary table

Process description: Explanation of PFD, you can show hierarchical structure of your
PFD introduced in Chemical Technology course. Provide the role of each equipment in
your PFD as well as justification why it was selected over other

Energy balances and utility requirements: energy utilities, separation utilities

(solvent and catalyst, etc), power requirements (such as turbine)
