Handbook of Industrial Chemistry and Biotechnology Vol. 1 – James A. Kent – 11th Edition


Handbook of Industrial Chemistry and Biotechnology Provides an integrated view of manufacturing areas with other topics essential in the new era. No other source offers as much data on the chemistry, engineering, economics, and infrastructure of the industry. Serves a spectrum of individuals, from those who are directly involved in the chemical industry to others in related industries and activities.

New edition containing data on nanotechnology, energy technology, and industrial production of enzymes and therapeutic proteins. The Handbook provides not only the underlying science and technology for important industry sectors, but also broad coverage of critical supporting topics. Industrial processes and products can be much enhanced through observing the tenets and applying the methodologies found in chapters on Green Engineering and Chemistry (specifically, biomass conversion), Practical Catalysis, and Environmental Measurements; as well as expanded treatment of Safety, chemistry plant security, and Emergency Preparedness.
