Abstract

A discussion on an integrated methyl-cyclohexane dehydrogenation/nitrobenzene hydrogenation plant covers a case study of coupled endothermic-exothermic reactions; thermal efficiency that can be realized with direct coupling of endothermic and exothermic reactions; enhancing reactor performance; multiplicity patterns, dynamic bifurcations, and autonomous oscillations; behavior of reactor-separation-recycle systems; application of theoretic findings to design a plant which simultaneously performs nitrobenzene hydrogenation to aniline and methylcyclohexane dehydrogenation to toluene; avoiding reactor runaway and realizing safe operation; and production rate changes. 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).
