Substantially revising and updating the information from the widely-used previous editions, this book offers a valuable overview of current chemical processes, products, and practices. No other source offers as much data on the chemistry, engineering, economics, and infrastructure of the industry. In addition to thoroughly revised material on chemical economics, safety, statistical control methods, and waste management, chapters on industrial cell culture and industrial fermentation expand the treatment of biochemical engineering. Sectors covered include: plastics, rubber, adhesives, textiles, pharmaceuticals, soap, coal, dyes, chlor-alkali, pigments, chemical explosives, petrochemicals, natural and industrial gas, synthetic nitrogen products, fats, sulfur, phosphorus, wood, and sweeteners. Comprehensive and easy to use, the tenth edition of Riegel's Handbook of Industrial Chemistry is an essential working tool for chemical and process engineers, chemists, plant and safety managers, and regulatory agency personnel.Although the odor problem is very severe, it does not appear that this process will be supplanted in the near future; instead, ... Although the price of anthraquinone ( AQ) is high and the chemical is not recovered, only small quantities are required, and ... the rapid growth of kraft pulping has reduced sulfitea#39;s share to less than 10 percent of the chemical pulp produced. ... Because solutions of sodium, magnesium, and ammonium bisulfite are all soluble at pH 4.5, the current practice is toanbsp;...
