The handout and PowerPoint from the class session on information resources for your chemical engineering plant design project:
CEPCI (Chemical Engineering Plant Cost Index) is available in each print issue of Chemical Engineering. The last page of each issue is devoted to Economic Indicators (CEPCI, Current Business Indicators, Consumer Price Index, and Current Trends, an overall look at how the CEPCI has changed in the recent months).
Chemical Engineering (magazine) is available on the 3rd floor of Chester Fritz Library in the periodicals section, call number TN 1 .M45. (We do have Chemical Engineering online, however, the online version does not offer the CEPCI for free; the data requires an individual subscription.)
Are you a distance student? You may request this information through InterLibrary Loan (ILL).
