dc.description.abstractThe formation of methyl decanoate (MeDC) by esterification reaction of decanoic acid with methanol through batch/continuous reactive distillation columns is operationally challenging, energy intensive and thus cost intensive operation due to complex thermodynamic behaviour of the reaction scheme. Aiming to overcome the equilibrium restriction of the decanoic acid (DeC) esterification operation, to improve the process efficiency and to reduce the total annualised cost (TAC), the semi-batch distillation column (SBD) and the recently proposed integrated semi-batch distillation column configuration (i-SBD) are investigated here. The performances of each of these column operations are evaluated in terms of minimum TAC for a given separation task. In both column configurations, additional operating constraints are considered into the optimization problem to prevent flooding of still pot due to the continuous charging of methanol into it. This study shows the superiority of i-SBD mode of operation over SBD operation in terms of TAC. Also, the optimization results for a defined separation task indicate that the performance of multi-interval control policy is overwhelmingly superior to the single-interval control operation in terms of operating batch time, and overall annual cost in the i-SBD system providing about a time saving of 82.75%, and cost (TAC) saving of 36.61% for a MeDC (product) concentration of 0.945 molefraction.en_US
