The second edition of a bestseller, this book describes batch distillation configurations, mathematical equations behind the design, optimization, and control problems, and solution methods to solve these problems. It contains extensive revisions and three new chapters and covers uncertainties complex columns for azeotropic, extractive, and reactive distillation. It includes in-depth descriptions of reactive and extractive distillation. Additional topics cover methods addressing uncertainties in batch distillation and their impact on design and control, as well as closed loop control. It also comes with an educational version of the software package, upon purchase.
