Three areas of research have received attention during the last twelve months. The objective of the first project is the development of a generalised methodology for generation of physically feasible process flowsheets. The thermodynamic insights based synthesis method developed earlier by Jaksland (PhD thesis Cecilia Jaksland, 1996) is further developed to include new definitions of properties-separation process relationships, to include new properties and separation processes and to include rules which enable the application of the synthesis algorithm when properties are not available. Also, the new algorithm can include the reactor in the flowsheet. The methodology employs a four-step procedure: a) mixture analysis, b) calculation of component property ratios, c) using the results of the previous steps to find the feasible separation techniques and d) listing the possible alternatives of the feasible separation techniques.
