Topic Name : Technical Aspects Related To Designing and Processing in Petrochemical and Fertilizer Industries
Expert Name : Dr. Bhavin Desai, Er. Anubhav Pathak
Audians : Final Year students of Chemical Engineering

Fertilizers play a major part in agriculture in terms of helping supply the constantly growing global population with foodstuffs. A fertilizer is a chemical or natural substance added to soil or land to increase its fertility. The purpose of fertilizers are to supplement the natural supply of soil nutrient, build up soil fertility in order to satisfy the demand of crops with a high yield potential and to compensate for the nutrients taken by harvested products or lost by unavoidable leakages to the environment, in order to maintain good soil conditions for cropping. The discussion was elaborated to types of fertilizers, different contents in fertilizers and its uses.

Topic Name : Process Design of Distillation Column
Expert Name : Mr. Parth Desai
Audians : Undergraduate Students and Industrial Person

Distillation is the most widely-used method of separating fluid mixtures on a commercial scale; it is thus an important part of many processes in the oil and chemical industries. The advantages of distillation are high purity products; economies of scale; well-established technology and competitive supply of equipment; use of low temperature, low cost energy; well suited for energy integration into the surrounding process.

Topic Name : Unit Operations And Seperation Process In Chemical Engineering
Expert Name : Prof. B. A. Domadia
Audians : Undergraduate Students and Industrial Person

A unit operation is a basic step in process industries. Unit operations involve a physical change or chemical transformation such as distillation, fluid transportation, heat and mass transfer, evaporation, extraction, drying, crystallization, filtration, mixing, size separation, crushing and grinding, and conveying.

Topic Name : Process designing
Expert Name : Mr. Love Patel
Audians : Undergraduate Students and Industrial Person

Process design is the choice and sequencing of units for desired physical and/or chemical transformation of materials. Process design is central to chemical engineering, and it can be considered to be the summit of that field, bringing together all of the field's components.

Topic Name : Simulation and Optimization : Applications in Chemical Engineering
Expert Name : Dr. N. M. Patel
Audians : Undergraduate Students and Industrial Person

Process simulation is a model-based representation of chemicalphysicalbiological, and other technical processes and unit operations in software. Basic prerequisites for the model are chemical and physical properties of pure components and mixtures, of reactions, and of mathematical models which, in combination, allow the calculation of process properties by the software.

Topic Name : Solid Waste Management
Expert Name : Ms. Rinsu Varghese
Audians : Undergraduate Students and Industrial Person

Solid-waste management; the collecting, treating, and disposing of solid material that is discarded because it has served its purpose or is no longer useful. Waste management is all about how solid waste can be changed and used as a valuable resource.

Topic Name : Process Heat Transfer
Expert Name : Prof. Satish Movaliya
Audians : Undergraduate Students and Industrial Person

Process Heat Transfer is a reference on the design and implementation of industrial heat transfer equipments; heat exchanger, evaporator, boiler, etc..

Topic Name : Importance of Pervaporation for Recovery of Volatile Organic Compounds
Expert Name : Prof. Ashish Modi
Audians : All 6th & 4th Semester students of Chemical Engineering Department

The term pervaporation is derived from the two steps of the process, permeation through the membrane by the permeate, then its evaporation into the vapor phase. This process is used by a number of industries for several different processes, including purification and analysis, due to its simplicity and in-line nature. The membrane acts as a selective barrier between the two phases: the liquid-phase feed and the vapor-phase permeate. It allows the desired component(s) of the liquid feed to transfer through it by vaporization. Separation of components is based on a difference in transport rate of individual components through the membrane.

Topic Name : Optimum Design and Operation of the Batch Reactor
Expert Name : Prof. Suchen B.Thakore
Audians : All 8th and 6th Semester students of Chemical Engg. Department

Batch processes play a very significant role in the chemical process industry. Because of their great flexibility, they are extensively used in the production of fine and specialty chemicals, Pharmaceuticals, Polymers, and bio- products, as well as other products for which efficient and continuous production is not feasible. Thus, batch processes contribute to a significant proportion in the world’s chemical production (especially in value). They are used for liquid phase reaction that requires fairly long reaction time. The batch reactors are used for beverage processes. The increasing technological trends towards the manufacturing of specialty chemicals make the efficient design and operation of batch processes even more important.
