Introduction

Process engineering, the science and art of effectively transforming feedstock materials into commercial products, was born in the 19th Century. Its origins can be found further back in the course of history: fermentations, distillations, macerations, and extractions enabled our remote ancestors to enjoy edible, portable, and pharmaceutically active substances, like mining, grinding, mixing, and smelting produced metals to be worked up into useful products – swords as well as ploughs.

But it was only with the quantitative description of chemical science in the 19th Century that the engineering of processes could be put on a rigorous basis. The great chemist, Antoine Lavoisier had shown the way when he formulated the law of conservation of mass in 1789.
