Modern Petroleum Refining Processes is a book by MN Rao that gives a comprehensive overview of the processes used in the petroleum industry
Summary Of The Book
A book about an industry that forms the base of a country’s economy, Modern Petroleum Refining Processes covers all the topics related to it and is especially apt for those wanting to refer to and understand modern refining processes.
Petroleum refining processes, in general, refer to those chemical engineering processes that are used in petroleum refineries which transform crude oil into many useful products like gasoline or petrol, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), jet fuel, kerosene, fuel oils and diesel oil.
The book stresses on how new technologies in these refining methods and discoveries have revolutionised the industry in India, although historically our country has been considered poor in these resources and has had to depend on imports.
A value-added text, Modern Petroleum Refining Processes analyses these very contemporary processes in the petroleum and natural gas industry. It also goes on to throw light on how the role of refiners has changed significantly with the growth of the automobile and aviation industries.
A resourceful book for students of chemical engineering courses, the Modern Petroleum Refining Processes is a good buy.
