In this survey article the author is concerned with the various efforts to reduce the degree of irreversibility of existing distillation processes. It is shown that the highest degree of irreversibility is due to transition to the adiabatic column and transition to finite condensers and boilers. The sources of irreversibility in multicomponent distillation are also examined.
