Abstract

• Solvent recovery is a viable option for manufacturing platforms in the specialty chemical industry • Case study shows potential benefits in śved and emissions reduced if a recovery scheme can b 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.
