CFD-DEM modeling of gas-solid flow and catalytic MTO reaction in a fluidized bed reactor

Abstract

The methanol-to-olefins (MTO) process is currently being implemented successfully in fluidized bed reactors (FBRs) in China. Characterizing the gas–solid flow is crucial in operating MTO FBRs effectively. In this work, a combined discrete element method (DEM) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model is developed to describe the gas–solid flow behavior… (More)
