The primary objective is to design a chemical plant for the production of nitric acid by ammonia oxidation process. Firstly, the description about the need of process design and which process to choose among the available for the production. Next step is performing material and energy balance for all equipment. Further, designing of all major equipment of the plant has to be done, followed by utilities and finally, the economic feasibility of the project has to be checked.
