Prospects of Wasteless Process for Co-Production of Phenol & Acetone (WEPP) presented by ILLA at CMT’s 11th Phenol/Acetone & Derivatives Markets Conference held on March 4 and 5 in Shanghai.
New wasteless process for commercialization either within a grassroots or in a revamp strategy features:
- Cumene usage for a commercial plant is expected to be record-low with substantial elimination of non-disposable wastes
- Fully-computerized control system ensures a much higher level of process safety
- Advantageous single-step design for the acid-catalyzed cumene hydroperoxide cleavage unit
- Compact and energy-efficient design for the cleavage product fractionation system, and a significantly superior quality of desired products
