462697 Development of Methanol Synthesis Process Using Self-Heat Recuperation
Recently, authors have developed self-heat recuperation technology. In this technology, each process unit is divided into functions to analyze the process energy balance and not only the latent heat but also the sensible heat of the process stream can be circulated without any heat addition, leading to huge reduction of energy requirements in several chemical processes.
In this research, we investigated the feasibility of applying self-heat recuperation technology to a methanol synthesis process using industrial conditions and data and developed an innovative process for methanol synthesis process from the energy saving point of view. By installing the self-heat recuperation technology to the methanol synthesis process, the energy consumption of the process can be greatly reduced. In addition, all of the exothermic reaction heat of the methanol synthesis can be recovered by steam generation.
