Dear All,


 In our industry we have production unit of ethyl acetate plant. Ethanol and acetic acid are raw material for this.

Since ethanol have purity of 99.5-99.8%. Impurities are iso amyl acohol, n-propanol, iso butyl acetat. But in large proportion is iso amyl alcohol. Due to this impurities they also get esterified and form there respective esters by reacting with acetic acid. 

 On daily basis from our reactor we give blowdown to remove this impurities. But this blowdown or conatminated material also contain raw material and products. 

So, our main motive is to recover those lossses of reactants and product.

 so give suggestion
