Reading Question 1.4:
Beginning with an idea, the Process Development Research Group would develop the chemical
process(es) needed to make that idea come to pass. Initial work would be on the laboratory scale
and would eventually progress to the building of a pilot plant to provide the data and experience
necessary for design and construction of the full-scale production plant. The Plant Design and
Construction Group would have responsibility for designing and building the production plant.
This group may also be involved in construction of the pilot plant. Environmental Engineering
would play a role in the design process, and continue to play a role once production begins to
insure that environmental regulations are not violated. Process Engineering would have primary
responsibility for start-up and operation of the production plant. Individuals in Technical
Chemical Sales would interact with customers to promote sales and use of the product.
