20140409 Universität Paderborn (DE) – Prof. Dr. Ing. Eugeny Kenig – “Update on dividing wall column technology”

The Fluid Process Engineering group at Paderborn works on the DWC as a PI response to rising energy demands, requiring efficient and clean energy usage especially for energy intensive process industries. From the historic developments in patents and installed base Kenig concludes that DWC will become the standard distillation tool. After an overview of DWC configurations, the demonstrated advantages are up to 50% less energy consumption, more compact and considerable lower investments with higher product quality and revamp payback times of one till two year outweigh limitations in process degrees of freedom, but controllability is good.

Current modelling is sufficient for non-reactive DWC’s but not yet for more complex systems. In spite of that major breakthrough is taking place: http://mb.uni-paderborn.de/fluidverfahrenstechnik/
