Process Creation

Hierarchical Approach to Conceptual Design (Artist’s Approach) Raw materials Desired products - Conceptualize (brainstorm) process options - First develop simple solutions and then follow with successive layers of detail - Apply common sense, heuristics and analysis - Find the “best” alternative Advantages : Allows cost estimation at every level of hierarchy; look for alternative routes, terminate project if need be Disadvantages : It is virtually impossible to identify all alternatives, let alone to analyze them all; optimal design unlikely

Synthesis Tree (chemistry) reactants) (columns, extractors, absorbers) (heat exchangers, pumps, compressors) (Flow sheet)

To satisfy the need for an additional 800 MM lb/yr of vinyl chloride (VC), the following plausible alternatives might be generated 1. Purchase VC by expanding a competitor’s nearby 2 B lb/yr plant (100 miles away) and ship by truck or train 2. Purchase and ship chlorine (produced by electrolysis of NaCl) by pipeline from a nearby plant and react it with ethylene to produce VC and HCl as a by-product 3. Because HCl is available at low cost internally, react HCl with acetylene, or ethylene and oxygen to produce 1,2-dichloroethane, an intermediate that can be cracked to VC 4. Design an electrolysis plant to produce Cl 2 . Then, react Cl 2 via Alternative 2
