Abstract

Reactive distillation (RD) is an effective way to integrate reaction and distillation. Since no general methodology to perform the conceptual design of RD is known it is not a widespread process in the industry. A general feasibility study is presented in this paper to study the feasibility of batch RD with fast equilibrium limited reaction. Its applicability is presented on the example of ethyl acetate production. Several configurations is found infeasible, but a complex configuration is found able to produce the desired products.
