Be Smart about Column Design


Optimizing distillation equipment and processes can improve both the profitability and the greenness of an operation.
Chemical plants consume large amounts of energy, much of which goes into separations, particularly distillation. Distillation columns also typically process significant quantities of feedstock to produce high volumes of finished products with (ideally) a minimal amount of waste. High energy consumption combined with large processing volumes makes the distillation process a prime target for optimization.
