20120612 AkzoNobel - Mr. Mayank Shah – Reactive distillation: An attractive alternative for polyesters synthesis

AkzoNobel presented an ISPT project on reactive distillation (RD), that resulted in a new continuous intensified polyester process with an adequately predicting RD model with production times less than 20% of the conventional process. Shah elucidated the model framework and model bases with good correspondence between experimental and model data.

RD internals were tested as well. The result is suitable for implementation in a multi-product continuous plant.

The ISPT project participants are AkzoNobel, DSM and Technical University Eindhoven. www.ispt.eu ; www.akzonobel.com
