    Abstract

    Solvent recovery is a viable option for manufacturing platforms in the specialty chemical industry Case study shows potential benefits in $ saved and emissions reduced if a recovery scheme can be implemented Much more attractive if recovery equipment (distillation) capacity is available Future work - Low-energy separations - Alternative solvents - Reach out to other plant locations - Water reuse evaluation/design and LCA - Reverse osmosis/Pervaporation/Adsorption/IX for washwater recovery.
