Distillation is the most used separation technology at industrial-scale, but using distillation in bio-based processes (e.g. fermentation processes to produce bioethanol) is quite challenging when mild temperatures are needed to keep the microbes alive. Vacuum distillation can be used to perform evaporation at low temperatures, but setting a...

Reactive distillation (RD) is a process intensification technique that offers major advantages over conventional technologies by enabling the integration of reaction and separation into a single apparatus. This integration introduces and exploits complex interaction between mass transfer, chemical reaction and hydrodynamics within an RD...

The application of large language models (LLMs) for programming tasks, such as automatic code completion, has seen a significant upswing in recent years. However, due to their computational demands, they have to operate on servers. This both requires users to have a steady internet connection and raises potential privacy concerns. Therefore,...

Large language models are powerful because of their state-of-the-art language processing abilities. But, they come at the cost of being extremely resource-intensive, and are steadily growing in size. As a result, compressing such models for resource- constrained devices is an active and promising re- search area. In spite of their current...

Increasing concerns over environmental pollution, climate change and energy security are driving a necessary transition from fossil carbon sources to more sustainable alternatives. Due to lower environmental impact, biochemicals are rapidly gaining significance as a potential renewable solution, particularly of interest in Europe. In this...

This paper explores the basis on which reliable screening of distillation sequences for energy-efficient separation of zeotropic multicomponent mixtures can be carried out. A case study for the separation of natural gas liquids is used to demonstrate the approach. To solve this generic problem, a screening algorithm has been developed using...

BACKGROUND: Isopropanol and acetone production by syngas fermentation is a promising alternative to conventional fossil carbon-dependent production. However, this alternative technology has not yet been scaled up to an industrial level owing to the relatively low product concentrations (about 5 wt% in total). This original research aims to...

In this paper, we introduce a novel heuristic approach designed to optimize the performance of Greenberger-Horne- Zeilinger (GHZ) creation and distillation protocols under decoherence. Our methodology converts these protocols into a practical set of instructions, demonstrating, through simulations, the production of higher-quality GHZ states...

Heterogeneous catalysis plays a pivotal role in the current chemical and energy vectors production. Notably, to fully utilize the intrinsic activity and selectivity of a catalyst, the chemical reactor has to be designed and operated optimally to achieve enhanced heat/mass transfer, well-defined contact time of reactants, uniform flow pattern,...

The synthesis of heat-integrated distillation sequences for energy-efficient separation of zeotropic multicomponent mixtures is complex due to the many interconnected design degrees of freedom. This paper explores the basis on which reliable screening can be carried out. To solve this problem, a screening algorithm has been developed using...

Lignocellulosic biomass potentially represents a great feedstock for biofuel production, but its’ pretreatment needs to be enhanced in order to make biorefineries competitive with fossil fuel based alternatives. One way to make biorefineries more economically viable is to recover and valorize all generated by-products during the biomass...

Reactive distillation (RD) is a process intensification technology that offers opportunities in the chemical industry. However, designing RD columns remains a demanding task as reaction and separation phenomena occur simultaneously in the column. Moreover, in the early phase of conceptual process design, most of the physical and chemical...

Advanced reactive distillation technologies (ARDT) are often overlooked during process synthesis due to their complexity. This work proposes the use of operating windows with additional features to identify suitable operating limits for ARDT. Data needed to construct the operating windows are thermodynamic properties, kinetic parameters,...

This study provides novel details about the industrial use of cyclic distillation in the production of food-grade alcohol, which confirmed the theoretical predictions of increasing separation efficiency. Increasing the profitability of the production of ethanol food grade is primarily associated with an increase in product quality and...

Knowledge Distillation (KD) is a well-known training paradigm in deep neural networks where knowledge acquired by a large teacher model is transferred to a small student. KD has proven to be an effective technique to significantly improve the student's performance for various tasks including object detection. As such, KD techniques mostly rely...

The modern chemical industry faces many challenges, such as energy transition. However, energy transition alone will not provide enough improvements to the industry to maintain profitability and increase sustainability. To achieve these goals, chemical processes have to be appropriately optimised, and only the synergy of these two factors can...
