Chemical Process engineer. Day to day includes designing/improving new and existing processes in the chemical and oil/gas energy industry. This includes calculating/updating mass/energy balances, determining what is needed and how to get it from different chemical mediums, calculating hydraulics, researching and sizing protective equipment (such as relief valves). We use a variety of programs to simulate/develop processes to observe chemical behavior in a given process and to understand the chemical reactions that take place in order to determine the proper equipment needed for any process. The thought process needed to determine/predict the behavior of organic matter can be applied to any and all process , not just those used at the atomic level. Any existing system can be treated as a mass/energy balance and from this observation one can begin to learn and determine methods for improvement or for experimentation.
