In this work, we have used various process optimization techniques (ASPEN Plus Optimization, LINGO Optimization) to get the best process operating parameters for the DRM+COSORB process while maximizing syngas production and minimizing overall CO2 emissions. Since this combination has not yet been studied in literature, there is room for process improvements. The ultimate goal is to synthesize an optimized process flow-sheet for the proposed DRM+COSORB process. A comparison between the optimized flow-sheet and current commercial processes will be made to show the technical and commercial prospects of the proposed process.
