The book provides a very solid introduction to integrated refinery process modeling and optimization, using many of the tools and techniques currently employed in modern refineries. In this very competitive global industry, it is critical to minimize overall operating costs while achieving the maximum possible upgrade for each hydrocarbon molecule. This is commonly referred to as "molecule management". All of these decisions and options require complex computer modeling to aid in the selection of feedstocks and product slates, and in troubleshooting and optimizing the performance of individual refinery processes such as distillation units, fluidized catalytic cracking units, continuous catalyst regeneration reforming units, and hydrocracking and hydrotreating units. And eventually, all of these individual parts have to be pulled together in order to feed a linear program (LP) model capable of optimizing the overall refinery. This complex modeling is the subject of the present book by Ai-Fu Chang, Kiran Pashikanti and Y. A. Liu. This text guides senior-level undergraduates, graduate students, and industrial practitioners how to quantitatively model key refinery reaction and fractionation processes.
