Synthesis and Optimisation of chemical processes

The aim of the synthesis of processes is to develop systematic methods of optimisation to select configurations of processes and conditions of operation, so much to level of subsystems and of complete processes. An important aim is to develop superstructures and models to different levels of abstraction (from added until rigorous), and develop effective and reliable technicians of resolution for these problems (MINLP MILP Programs disyuntivos). Areas of application include: synthesis of networks of exchange of heat, plant of treatment of residual waters, systems of distillation and diagrams of processes.

Study of the curves of distillation and his borders in systems azeotrópicos. New methods for the representation and the calculation (rigorous and approximate) of the liquid balance-steam, liquid-liquid, liquid-liquid-steam and liquid-liquid-solid.

It transport reagent in porous means

Study of processes of transport and/or reaction of substances in liquid phase that cross a column fills up of a natural means (soil, sand,…) or synthetic (resin, adsorbente,…) with ends very diverse: environmental studies of processes of pollution/decontamination of soils, technical of ionic exchange applied to industrial processes or to treatment of liquid effluents contaminated, processes of adsorption, precipitation/dissolution,… in porous means,...

The previous studies realise in columns of stainless steel, glass, teflón,…of dimensions very different, that allow the adjust termostático of the same. They use bombs of HPLC, with exact control of discharges for systems so much of drop and of high pressure. It has of detector on line and system of acquisition of data of pressure and conductivity, with register in PC. The frequency of it takes of samples realise with manifold of fractions with possibility of termostatizar the sample obtained.

The characterisation of the columns realise with substances trazadoras. From the curves of split obtained, determine the parameters of transport (porosidad, dispersion,…) using a software developed for such end.

It has realised determinations so much of inorganic substances (cations and majority anions in water of sea) and organic (Linear Alquilbenceno Sulfonato) in essays realised so much in pulse and in stair.

The works of investigation developed until the moment include studies of marine intrusion as well as of transport of contaminantes. The results obtained in conditions controlled are useful to verify models of transport reactivate with speciation/saturation eat: PHREEQC (USGS), ACUAINTRUSION (Dpto. Chemical engineering Or.To.), IMPACT (LSGS, Nancy, France),…

In the group of investigation include some members of the group of Balance between phases like Vicente Gomis, Francisco Ruiz, Ricardo Pedraza, María Dolores Saquete and personal hired.
