Prerequisite
Basics of Chemical Process Industries
Rationale
The development of refining and petro-chemical industries in the country has made it compulsory for the chemical engineers to understand important aspects of petroleum refining and petrochemical technology. Petroleum refining as well as petrochemical industries constitute a major part of chemical sector. Every chemical engineer has to invariably handle the enormous consumption of petroleum products, their diversity and increasing applications. Chemical engineer has to apply the relevant concepts for operating petroleum refinery or petrochemical plant in a smooth and safe manner. Beside this, a chemical engineer must be aware about the various properties of petroleum fractions as well as petrochemicals. Hence, this course has been designed to develop such expertise and skills.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Understandfundamentals of petroleum refinery & various petrochemical plants.
2. Characterize & Test various properties of different petroleum fractions.
3. Understand scenario of refinery & petrochemical industries.
4. Understand manufacturing processes & applications of widely used petrochemicals.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
