Waste Minimization in Cumene Production Process

Nagamalleswara Rao K


This study deals with waste minimization in cumene production process using WAR (Waste Reduction Algorithm). Initially cumene production process is designed using ASPEN PLUS V8.8 chemical process simulator. Using WAR algorithm PEI’s (Potential Environmental Impacts) are calculated. Based on the PEI values process modifications are suggested to minimize the PEI’s. The modified process is eco-friendly by reducing the waste by 29.9%.
