Abstract

A systematic retrofitting of the conventional process for gasohol production was conducted by incorporating the direct extraction of ethanol from fermentation beer by gasoline. The retrofitting was holistically executed by means of an inordinately efficient graph-theoretic method for network synthesis based on process graphs. Thermodynamic analysis was conducted based on the law of mass conservation and the first and second laws of thermodynamics. By resorting to the mass, energy, entropy-dissipation, and available energy balances, the sources and magnitudes of the inefficiencies and irreversibilities were identified in terms of energy requirement, entropy increase, and available energy dissipation. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting (San Francisco, CA 11/12-17/2008).
