Abstract

Adsorption is ubiquitous in the laboratory-scale as well as industrial-scale separation or purification of liquid and gaseous mixtures for the manufacture of a wide variety of chemicals, biochemicals, and materials, e.g., fuel-grade ethanol by a biochemical route. The potential of adopting adsorption for the same purpose in the biochemical production of butanol, ethanol, and acetone has been well recognized. The possibility of incorporating both adsorption and the conventional separation methods, including various types of distillation and extraction, into an industrial plant through synthesizing the potentially optimal and near- optimal flowsheets for it was presented. A comparative analysis was conducted among the resultant flowsheets as well as with those consisting only of the conventional separation methods. The flowsheets' generation was implemented with a graph-theoretic method for process-network synthesis based on process graphs. Butanol could be concentrated form 0.5 to 98% (wt/vol). This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting and Fall Showcase (Cincinnati, OH 10/30/2005-11/4/2005).
