ChE seniors publish research in academic journal

In the March 2013 issue of Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research, a publication of the American Chemical Society, Rebecca Masel ‘13 and Dalton Smith ‘13 have co-authored a paper with Professor Bill Lubyen entitled "Use of Two Distillation Columns in Systems with Maximum Temperature Limitations".

The paper studies two alternative flow sheets to establish under what conditions a two-distillation column process is more economical than a conventional one-column process in distillation systems with maximum temperature limitations that are encountered when separating thermally sensitive materials. The paper resulted from studies that the students were conducting as part of their process design course CHE233 during the fall 2012 semester.
