Economic Evaluation in the Chemical Process Industries: A Guide to Prudent Planning
Economic evaluation is necessary in deciding whether to pursue proposed business ventures. No business is too small to ignore economic evaluation, none too large to override it. This book describes how economic evaluations are performed in the chemical processing industries and illustrates them by appropriate examples. It stresses methods actually employed in real situations and suggests how results can be interpreted. To the extent possible the authors use common business language rather than specialized terms in order that new concepts will be more readily understood by those encountering the subject for the first time.
