     A practical new text devoted to the many ways in which raw materials are economically converted into useful products. Discussions of large-scale processes--materials addition, removal, and change--are grouped together, followed by coverage of applications.

Students first build a thorough knowledge of similarities and differences in processes, and that foundation carefully sets the stage for an understanding of how to choose the optimal processes for a specific project. Throughout the narrative, consideration is given to economies of time and material, to environmental consequences, and to the safety of various processes and procedures...as well as to presenting the most current, industry-sanctioned processes being used today.
