CEP: August 2019

This issue of CEP highlights the H2@Scale initiative, including critical analyses performed by the DOE’s national laboratories to assess the impact of the growth of hydrogen on our economy and the safety aspects required to sustain a large-scale hydrogen distribution and utilization network in the U.S. It also reviews and discusses the value proposition and technology advancement of H2@Scale happening globally around ammonia produced from renewable hydrogen. Other topics in this issue include distillation technology: what's next? and dynamic simulation.

Editorial

Let's Talk Separations

Our editorial calendar told me that this issue’s Back to Basics article would cover distillation, but I didn’t know specifically what Liz Pavone, who handles that department, had planned until I got her edited article: “Distillation Technology: What’s Next?” by José Bravo of Fractionation Research, Inc...

Distillation Technology: What’s Next?

August
2019
Back To Basics
José L. Bravo
Distillation is often described as a mature technology that is well understood and established, no longer requiring funding or attention from research and development. This thinking is flawed, as distillation has come a long way in the past three decades and has even more room to grow.

Leverage Dynamic Process Simulation
