Distillation has historically been the main method for
separating mixtures in the chemical process industry. However,
despite the flexibility and widespread use of distillation
processes, they still remain extremely energy inefficient.
Increased optimization and novel distillation concepts can deliver
substantial benefits, not just in terms of significantly lower
energy use, but also in reducing capital investment and improving
eco-efficiency. While likely to remain the separation technology of
choice for the next few decades, there is no doubt that
distillation technologies need to make radical changes in order to
meet the demands of the energy-conscious society.
"Advanced Distillation Technologies: Design, Control and
Applications "gives a deep and broad insight into integrated
separations using non-conventional arrangements, including both
current and upcoming process intensification technologies. It
includes: Key concepts in distillation technologyPrinciples of
design, control, sizing and economics of distillationDividing-wall
column (DWC) - design, configurations, optimal operation and energy
efficient and advanced controlDWC applications in ternary
separations, azeotropic, extractive and reactive distillationHeat
integrated distillation column (HIDiC) - design, equipment and
configurationsHeat-pump assisted applications (MVR, TVR, AHP, CHRP,
TAHP and others)Cyclic distillation technology - concepts, modeling
approach, design and control issuesReactive distillation -
fundamentals, equipment, applications, feasibility schemeResults of
rigorous simulations in Mathworks Matlab & Simulink, Aspen
Plus, Dynamics and Custom Modeler
Containing abundant examples and industrial case studies, this
is a unique resource that tackles the most advanced distillation
technologies - all the way from the conceptual design to practical
