One way of increasing the Productivity / yield is to minimize the side reactions, minimizing the byproducts. This can be done by selecting proper process / catalyst if used in the process.

chemical process engineer should observe the changes in temperature, pressure, flow and electrical load of the units to understand the changes in the process. Fugitive emission and stack emission are to be controlled to the minimum possible level to avoid atmospheric pollution and to improve the efficiency of the process.
