A new short-cut method for synthesizing multicomponent distillation systems with energy integration was developed and compared with rigorous calculations. Parametric studies on the profitability of energy integration to the severity of the utility cost function and to the thermodynamic limitation were carried out. The results entirely satisfy the claim of preliminary design for mixtures heavier than C3-hydrocarbons, and aromatics, etc. , where the optimal overhead condenser temperature corresponds to the cooling water threshold temperature.
