Abstract

The process control of biodiesel production by reactive absorption is examined. An efficient control structure that can ensure the stoichiometric ratio of reactants and fulfills the excess of methanol operating constraint that is sufficient for the total conversion of the fatty acids and for prevention of difficult separations, e.g., fatty acid -fatty ester, is highlighted. Aspen Plus and Aspen Dynamics can be successfully used as efficient computer aided process engineering tools to perform rigorous simulations for testing various control structures. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 7th European Congress of Chemical Engineering-7 and 19th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering CHISA (Prague, Czech Republic 8/28/2010-9/1/2010).
