A simple and fast procedure is developed for determining optimal steady state operating policies for chemical plants with recycle. This article improves upon the previous findings by Griffin et al. (Ind Eng Chem Res. 2006;45:8056-8062) and now provides a more general classification procedure for process chemistries that have reversible reactions or reactions of unequal overall order or both. Selectivity vs. conversion relationships are indirectly determined herein, requiring only the reaction… CONTINUE READING
