This project comprises a preliminary conceptual process design of a plant facility producing anhydrous IPA from propylene via direct hydration. The process of completing the design is performed using a PSE approach. This is a systematic top down approach which decomposes the design problem into 12 tasks. The last tasks concern optimization of the plant design by targeting bottle-necks and sustainability issues using computational simulation tools.
