Solvent Recovery and Recycle
My partner, Jaired Re, and I completed the 1998 version of the AIChE design competiton as part of our Process and Plant Design course. We designed, optimized, and streamlined a theoretical process to separate toluene and acetonitrile from waste streams and return them to a siloxane polymerization unit for reuse as high-grade solvents. We used ASPEN+ to carry out all relevant design work and calculations. A full breakdown of our project can be viewed here.
