Abstract: The main objective of the presented work was to explore the possibilities of parallel computing utilization in chemical engineering. Parallel computers and principles of parallel computing are in brief described in Introduction. The next part exposes the possibilities of parallel programming in Matlab and C# programming language environment. The next three parts provide case studies of parallel computing in chemical engineering. Each example of the benefits of HPC involves a comparison with its serial equivalents.

Keywords: parallel computing; parallel programming; chemical engineering
