Abstract

An integrated process for the production of γ-butyrolactone by coupling maleic anhydride hydrogenation and 1, 4-butanediol dehydrogenation in a fixed bed adiabatic reactor is studied. The reaction conditions realizing optimal hydrogen utilization and better energy efficiency are determined. Compared to stand-alone processes, the integrated process has several advantages, such as simpler reactor, easy temperature control, improved γ-butyrolactone yield, good energy efficiency and optimal hydrogen utilization. The integrated plant shows robust behavior with respect to disturbances and allows production rate change.
