Numerous terminology and usage discrepancies have been shown by overviews of textbooks (from elementary school to university level), as well as professional and scientific papers related to chemistry, chemical engineering and chemical technology published in Croatian language. These discrepancies are especially present in descriptions of laboratory, pilot plant and industrial equipment and procedures.

Due to the lack of terminology principles knowledge and deficiency of language culture, numerous inadequate derivatives from English and German terms are used. Additionally, many terms widely used in everyday practice are normatively considered as jargon.

The aim of KELANA project is to deal with terms used for description of laboratory, pilot plant and industrial equipment and procedures. They will be collected, elaborated by applying terminology expert methodology and introduced in a database of Croatian Special Field Terminology, STRUNA (http://struna.ihjj.hr/).

At the same time, in the framework of KELANA project, further development of chemical terminology, started within the project Development of Croatian Chemical Terminology (KENA, 2009 – 2010), will be proceeded.

In order to increase language culture, especially of future professionals in the field of chemistry, chemical engineering and technology, an outstanding care will be dedicated to dissemination activities of project results.
