Good evening to anyone who reads this,

 

I am a senior in Chemical Engineering who graduates in May 2024 of this year. Currently for my senior design project I am trying to implement reactive distillation in my aspen simulation but do not know where to begin, the goal is to obviously lower capital cost by eliminating some equipment to yield a higher DCFOR. The reaction taking place is Urea Alcoholyis. Methanol and urea are fed to a mixer then a reactor operating at 100C and 7 atm. The intermediates and By products are Methyl Carbonate, ammonia, NMMC, and water. The main product which I am selling is Dimethyl Carbonate. If anyone can either help me implement this or can point me in the right direction with literature, patents, and or even hop on a zoom call to help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Google "reactive distillation Aspen+" you will find video to support your simulation.You should find literature about the process at the library of your university. A google search may be an option.

https://www.scienced...all the studies.

Good luck.

note: we are happy to help/support, not more.

I think I only asked for help/support, nothing more.
