dc.description.abstractAmong several treatment methods Catalytic Wet Air Oxidation (CWAO) treatment is considered as a useful and powerful method for removing phenol from waste waters. In this work, mathematical model of a trickle bed reactor (TBR) undergoing CWAO of phenol is developed and the best kinetic parameters of the relevant reaction are estimated based on experimental data (from the literature) using parameter estimation technique. The validated model is then utilized for further simulation and optimization of the process. Finally, the TBR is scaled up to predict the behavior of CWAO of phenol in industrial reactors. The optimal operating conditions based on maximum conversion and minimum cost in addition to the optimal distribution of the catalyst bed is considered in scaling up and the optimal ratio of the reactor length to reactor diameter is calculated with taking into account the hydrodynamic factors (radial and axial concentration and temperature distribution).en_US
