Material and Energy Balances: Flow Chemistry Case Study
Jarboe, Laura R.
Chemical Engineering Education, v53 n4 p207-212 Fall 2019
Undergraduate students taking the Material and Energy Balance course often comment on (a) having a desire to know more about what kinds of problems chemical engineers working in industry address; and (b) feeling that in-class examples and homework problems do not address real-world problems. This case study, used in the Material and Energy Balance course in spring 2018, aims to help students gain a better understanding of the chemical engineering profession and to closely study a new, high-impact production process. Relating the various concepts introduced throughout the semester to a single production process helps students integrate these concepts. Finally, by demonstrating the application of course concepts to the safe and lower-cost production of a potential anti-cancer compound, this case study may provide some of the benefits previously attributed to service-learning
