VCM Process Design: An ABET 2000 Fully Compliant Project
Benyahia, Farid
Chemical Engineering Education, v39 n1 Win 2005
A long experience in undergraduate vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) process design projects is shared in this paper. The VCM process design is shown to be fully compliant with ABET 2000 criteria by virtue of its abundance in chemical engineering principles, integration of interpersonal and interdisciplinary skills in design, safety, economics, and societal impacts as well as a balanced blend of individual and collaborative student input. The details and approach presented can be applied with modifications where appropriate in other chemical engineering departments.
