An automatic design method for batch extractive distillation, one of the most important techniques for separating low relative volatility or azeotropic mixtures, is presented. Example calculations are performed to the acetone-methanol mixture using water as entrainer. The NLP and MINLP problems are solved with applying GAMS DICOPT++.
