Abstract
Ethyl acetate (EtAc) is mainly used as solvent in paints, adhesives and coatings, eliminating the use of
aromatic compounds. Reactive distillation is a type of process intensification in which the separation
and reaction is combined in one vessel. In this work, reactive distillation (RD) process for EtAc was
implemented using process simulator Aspen HYSYS by applying the data obtained from the
bibliography. A sensitive analysis was performed to determine the effects of key design and
operating variables on column performance and, subsequently, an optimal column configuration
was obtained.

Introduction

Ethyl acetate

Ethyl acetate is the organic compound with the formula CH3COOC2H5 and having a molecular weight
of 88.10 gmol-1. This compound liquid is colorless, with a characteristically sweet, pleasant odor.
Ethyl acetate has been largely used as a solvent in paints, coatings, inks and adhesives. It has also
been used as a solvent in many chemical processes as a green alternative, eliminating the use of
aromatic compounds, which generate serious damage to the environment and human beings [1].

Synthesis of ethyl acetate

Ethyl acetate can be produced industrially in three ways: the Fischer esterification process,
Tishchencko reaction and the addition of acetic acid to ethylene.

Fischer esterification (Eq. (2.1)) is a classic process which ethyl acetate is formed by the reaction of
ethanol and acetic acid using acidic catalysts [2] such as sulfuric acid and para-toluene sulfonic acid
(PTSA) [3] [4].

2 5 + 3 3 2 5 + 2 (2.1)
This reaction converts ethyl acetate in about 65% yield at room temperature [5]. In the United
States, this method is used commercially to produce more than 100 million pounds of ethyl acetate
annually, mainly for use as a solvent in the paint industry, but also as a solvent for nail polish and
various glues [6].

The Tishchenko reaction (Eq. (2.2)) between two similar aldehydes (acetaldehyde) gives an ester
(ethyl acetate) by adding alkoxide catalyst to acetaldehyde.

23 3 2 5 (2.2)
The exothermic conversion of acetaldehyde takes place at 0 5 C (with cooling) in this solution.
This reaction gives the selectivity roughly 96% at conversion 95% (based on acetaldehyde) [2].

The addition of acetic acid to ethylene (Eq. (2.3)) is newly commercialized. It uses clay and
heteropoly acids (HPA) as catalysts.

2 = 2 + 3 3 2 5 (2.3)

This new reaction has considerable benefits over conventional technologies since it eliminates the
intermediate step for the production of ethanol and also avoids environmental hazards related with
other processes by using supported heteropoly acid on silica [7].

Reaction kinetics and parameters

Out of these three processes, we will focus on Fischer esterification as the process to be simulated.
The reversible esterification reaction is shown as below:
k1
2 5 + 3 3 2 5 + 2 (2.4)
k2

Where k1 and k2 are forward and backward rate constants.

The rate model is:

= 1 2 2 (2.5)

The rate constants k1 and k2 can be presented by Arrhenius equation:


1 = ( ) 2 = ( ) (2.6)

Where A is pre-exponential factor and Ea is activation energy. Several authors have calculated the
kinetic parameters by conducting the experiment such as Calvar et al. [8] and Erol [9].

Calvar et al. [8] studied the homogenous reaction (esterification of hydrolysis) catalyzed by acetic
acid by taking into account the activity coefficient. The kinetic parameters were calculated using
ASOG [10] and UNIFAC [11] methods.

Erol [9] carried out experiment of esterification with acidic polymer catalyst and found that
heterogeneous catalyst is very effective from the point of view of activity, selectivity, reuse and non-
corrosiveness compared to homogeneous catalyst.

Reactive Distillation

Most chemical processes comprise two important operations (reaction and separation) that are
typically carried out in different sections of the plant and use different equipment. In the reaction
section, the type of reactors that are used typically are CSTR, tubular or batch with variety of
conditions (catalyzed, adiabatic, cooled or heated, single phase, multiple phase, etc.). The separation
section consists of several types of operation (distillation, extraction, crystallization, adsorption,
etc.). Instead of conducting the reaction and separation in separate units and vessels, it is sometime
possible to combine in a single vessel, in other words, to intensify the process. This integration
concept is called reactive distillation (RD), when heterogeneous catalysts are applied the term
catalytic distillation is always used [12].

There has been growing interest in RD. several hundred papers has been published in recent years.
Fig. 2.1 shows the rate of growth in the literature and patents during the last 4 decades (U.S. only).
In a review of Malone et al. [13], a total of 562 publications from 1970 to 1999 and 571 U.S. patents
from 1971 to 2000 were published. Recently updated survey by Gorak et al. [14], survey shows 1979
publications 278 U.S. patents were published between 2000 and 2011.

Most successful application of RD is the manufacturing of methyl acetate by Eastman Chemical


Company. Only one column is needed instead of nine and a reactor. Jeff Siirola reported that this
single reactive column by Eastman improves by 5 times reduction of energy used and 5 times lower
capital investment [15].

Fig. 2.2 shows the conventional and intensified processes of methyl acetate synthesis. The
conventional process consists of one reactor followed by eight distillation columns and one
extraction column. The intensified (Eastman) process uses reactive distillation.

Principles of Reactive Distillation

Typically, a RD column equipment consists of a reactive column with the feed input (Fig. 2.3).
Reactive column can be divided into three different zones: rectifying, reactive and stripping. The
rectifying section and the stripping section serve as the reactant recovery from product. However,
they may not be needed depending on the reaction and desired separation. In the reactive zone,
chemical reaction and distillation occur simultaneously [17]. Reactive zone also is the place where
catalysts, either homogeneous or heterogeneous are packed. The feed input can be either single or
double. Double feed input can improve the contact between the reactants, resulting more uniformly
distributed reaction in the column [18].

Reactive distillation is applied whenever a liquid phase reaction is carried out with a large excess of
one reactant, where conventional process experience high costs due to the recycle of the excess
reactant. In certain cases, RD can normally be carried out closer to stoichiometric feed conditions,
therefore eliminating recycle cost. The continuous separation of products from reactants that occurs
in RD causes the reaction to proceed in forward reaction by Le Chateliers principle [19].

Figure 2.3: Schematic diagram of a typical reactive distillation configuration. (Source Agirre et al. [20])

Combining reaction with distillation is not always advantageous [21]. The in situ separation in the
reaction zone or vice versa leads to complex interactions between vapor-liquid equilibrium, mass
transfer rates, diffusion and chemical kinetics [22] [23].

In designing a reactive distillation column, the model of the process is required. There are two types
of modelling approaches available in the literature for reactive distillation: the equilibrium stage
model and the non-equilibrium stage model [24].

The EQ stage model assumes that the vapor and liquid leaving on each stage are in equilibrium with
each other. This model is mathematically much simpler and computationally less intensive [25]. On
the other hand, the non-equilibrium one is more consistent with the real world operations [26].
According to Taylor et al. [23], in recent years reactive distillation has been modelled using non-
equilibrium (NEQ) rate-based model rather than equilibrium (EQ) stage model. This NEQ approach
takes into account heat and mass transfer through V-L interface using two film models which require
proper mass and heat transfer coefficient estimation [27].

There are two different types of reactive separation process of NEQ rate-based model: a
homogeneous system in which the reaction (catalyzed or not) takes place only in the liquid phase, or
heterogeneous system in which a solid phase is present to catalyze the reaction.

Taylor et al. [23])

Fig. 2.4 shows the various transfer processes in homogeneous and heterogeneous RD. The transport
processes for homogeneous system can be described as follows:

a) Mass transfer through the vapor film


b) Mass transfer with reaction in the liquid film
c) Reaction in the bulk liquid

While for the heterogeneous system:

a) Transport of reactants from the bulk vapor to bulk liquid


b) Transport of reactants from the bulk liquid to the catalyst surface
c) Reaction at the surface
d) Transport of reaction products from the catalyst surface to the bulk liquid
e) Transport of the reaction products from the liquid to the bulk vapor.

Benefits and limitations of Reactive Distillation

The advantages of RD are discussed by Gorak et al. [14].

i. Chemical equilibrium limitation can be overcome.


For chemical equilibrium limited reactions, continuous removal of one of the products
increases conversion as it converts a reversible reaction into an irreversible one. Thus, a
reactant conversion approaching 100% is achievable.

9|Page
Simulation of Ethyl Acetate Synthesis via Reactive Distillation | Khairul Naim Bin Ahmad

ii. Higher selectivity can be achieved


Undesired side reactions are suppressed through removal of the target product from the
columns reactive zone. Compared to conventional setup, undesired side reactions results
the formation of byproducts and this will require more than single distillation column to
purify the product.

iii. Heat of reaction can be used in situ for distillation


For exothermic reactions, the heat of reaction can be directly used to provide the heat of
vaporization. This leads to the reduction of reboiler duty and hotspots are avoided due to
the vaporization of liquid phase.

iv. Overcoming of azeotropes


Azeotropes of the product mixture from the reactor can be avoided by reacting the mixture
under specific conditions in the column.

v. Simplified separation of close-boiling components


A reactive entrainer can be used to react with one of the components to form an
intermediate product whose boiling point facilitates the separation. The backward reaction
of intermediate product is performed in a subsequent reactive distillation column. This
method is depicted in Fig. 2.5.

vi. Capital savings


Simplification or elimination of the separation system can lead to a significant reduction in
plant costs. Esterification of methyl acetate by Eastman (Fig. 2.2) presents an industrial
example of such energy savings.

Figure 2.5: Separation of reactive and inert components with close boiling points, facilitated by reactive distillation. (Source
Stankiewicz et al. [16])

Due to its complexity, several constraints and difficulties limit the successful application of RD. Some
of the constraints described by Towler et al. [28] are the following:

I. Volatility constraints
The reagents and products must have suitable volatility to maintain high concentrations of
reactants and low concentrations of products in the reaction zone.

II. Residence time requirement


If the residence time for the reaction is long, a large column size and large tray hold-ups will
be needed and it may be more economic to use a reactor-separator arrangement.

III. Scale up to large flows


It is difficult to design RD processes for a very large flow rates because of liquid distribution
problems in packed RD columns.

IV. Process conditions mismatch


In some processes the optimum conditions of temperature and pressure for distillation may
be far from optimal for reaction and vice versa.

To overcome these constraints, heuristics, or rules-of thumbs, have been published from time to
time to provide guidance and insight for initial analysis of process feasibility and conceptual design.
But still, the literature specific to reactive distillation heuristics is limited [17].

Applications of Reactive Distillation

Commercial applications of RD reported by Seader et al. [29]:

I. Esterification of acetic acid with ethanol to produce ethyl acetate and water.
II. Reaction of formaldehyde and methanol to produce methylal and water, using a solid acid
catalyst [30].
III. Esterification of acetic acid with methanol to produce methyl acetate and water, using
sulfuric acid catalyst, as patented by Agreda and Partin [31], and described by Agreda, Partin
and Heise [32].
IV. Reaction of isobutene with methanol to produce methyl-tert-butyl ether (MTBE), using a
solid, strong-acid ion exchange resin catalyst, as patented by Smith [33] [34] [35] and further
developed by DeGarmo et al. [36].

Aspen HYSYS process simulator

HYSYS offers a high degree of flexibility because there are multiple ways to accomplish specific tasks.
This flexibility combined with a consistent and logical approach to how these capabilities are
delivered makes HYSYS an extremely versatile process simulation tool [37]. HYSYS is widely used in
universities and colleges in introductory and advanced courses especially in chemical engineering. In
industry the software is used in research, development, modelling and design [38].

The built-in property packages in HYSYS provide accurate thermodynamic, physical and transport
property predictions for hydrocarbon, non-hydrocarbon, petrochemical and chemical fluids. They
are divided into five basic methods [39]:

I. Equations of state (LKP, PR, SRK and their modifications) for rigorous treatment of
hydrocarbon systems
II. Semi-empirical models (Chao-Seader and Grayson-Streed)
III. Vapour pressure models (Antoine, Braun k10, Esso K) for the heavier hydrocarbon systems
IV. Activity coefficient models (Margules, UNIQUAC, Van Laar, NRTL, Wilson and their
modifications, etc.) for chemical systems.
V. Miscellaneous (special application) models (Amines and steam packages).

The calculation method for distillation in HYSYS is done to a high standard in accordance with the
matrix method. A quick convergence and short simulation time is therefore guaranteed. In most
cases, the user need not be concerned with the details of the internal calculation, this is done
automatically by HYSYS [39].

For this study, we used HYSYS v8.0, the latest version of HYSYS to simulate the reactive distillation.
HYSYS provides many built-in modules for simulating various processes. However for reactive
distillation, it is only possible to simulate RD with reactions taking place in homogeneous phase. It is
not directly suitable for the simulation of the heterogeneous catalytic distillation process.

However, Bumbac et al. [40] managed to develop a model for heterogeneous RD and implement the
model in the Aspen HYSYS simulation environment. Reactive section consists of equal CSTR in series
with same geometry and size. The flow and mixing in the reaction zone is approximated by a
backflow cell model (BCM) with forward flow of the liquid and a back flow of vapour in the reactive

part of RD zone. Both stripping and rectifying zone are simulated as refluxed absorber and reboiled
absorber respectively. Fig. 2.6 shows the process flowsheet of RD column.

Simulation of Reactive Distillation for synthesis of ethyl acetate

Esterification of acetic acid with ethanol to produce ethyl acetate is one such process where RD has
been implemented successfully. The studies of RD are usually divided into experimental and
simulations parts.

Singh et al. [4] carried out the simulation of industrial RD column using process simulator Aspen Plus.
The 50-stage RD column was simulated using non-equilibrium (NEQ) rate-based model to predict the
composition profile in column based on the plant scale data in literature. As the available activity
models could not give good prediction, a new set of binary interaction parameters is established for
the NRTL model, which give close prediction of composition profile in the plant scale RD column.

There are some authors who have performed simulation of RD of esterification to obtain the
optimum column configuration. Wiheeb et al. [39] used the Aspen HYSYS process simulator to find
the best operating condition. Kinetic parameters of Calvar et al. [8] have been applied to the
simulation. The activity models (NRTL, UNIFAC, Wilson) have been compared for each analysis
(effect of water content in feed, bottom temperature, reflux ratio). Huang et al. [41], conducted a
pilot plant experiment and simulation of RD using Aspen Plus. By applying equilibrium (EQ) model to

13 | P a g e

simulation, the key operating parameters has been analysed such as reflux ratio, feed stage location,
molar feed ratio, etc. Both Wiheeb et al. [39] and Huang et al. [41] concluded that the simulation
results show excellent agreement with experimental data. Giwa et al. [42] carried out the simulation
and optimization of the RD column using Aspen HYSYS optimizer by applying different algorithms
which are Fletcher-Reeves, Quasi-Newton and Successive Quadratic Programming (SQP). The
optimization result shows SQP is better algorithm because of lowest feed ratio and reducing cost.

Tavan et al. [43] [44] proposed two improvised version of RD of esterification using Aspen HYSYS. In
the first study, they combined two serial columns of RD and rectifier are used to produce highly
purity ethyl acetate [43]. They found that keeping the reactants rates near the stoichiometric ratio
leads to significant energy saving for various ethanol flow rates. In the second work, Tavan et al. [44]
eliminated the residue water the in the RD column by adding an auxiliary reaction of hydration of
ethylene oxide (EO) which produces ethylene glycol (EG), which is an industrially relevant product
used mainly as antifreeze in coolers. This results the energy reduction, coproduction of ethyl acetate
with ethylene glycol and the breaking of azeotropes.

in this study is shown in Fig 3.1. The 17-stage

ethanol is introduced at stage 17. Acetic acid
is always introduced in the higher section,
because it is less volatile than ethanol. All the

Process development

Defining the simulation basis


The process simulator Aspen HYSYS v8.0 was used for the simulation. To begin with, we have to
construct a simulation basis for our process. The first step is adding the components (ethanol, acetic
acid, ethyl acetate and water) to the simulation (Fig. 3.2).

Figure 3.2: Adding the components to the simulation

Once we have specified the components present in our simulation, we can set the fluid package for
our simulation. The fluid package is used to calculate the fluid/thermodynamic properties of the
components and mixtures in your simulation. For the initial case, Wilson is chosen as property
package as shown in Fig. 3.3.

Figure 3.3: Selecting the property package

Add the feed stream


Now we have completed all necessary input to begin our simulation. We will be entering the
simulation environment to start defining the material streams and column. We have define two
input material streams, which are our feed streams F0 and F1. The temperature, flow rate, pressure
and flow rate need to be specified for each feed stream. Fig 3.4 and 3.5 shows how we specify the
stream F0 using the data from Table 3.1. The same step is applied for stream F1.

Add the distillation column


The main component in our simulation, the distillation column is added with condenser and reboiler.
We set the number of stages, the feeding stage F0 and F1, the output streams F2 and F3 and type of
condenser, as shown in Fig. 3.6. The condenser and reboiler pressures, reflux ratio and distillate rate
are defined in Fig. 3.7 and 3.8. Once we have defined the parameters in the column we need to run
the it to ensure our specified data converges.

Adding the reaction


To add a reaction in HYSYS, we have to create a set of new reaction for our process. We define the
stoichiometric coefficients for each component with the positive sign is the product and negative is
the reactant. The reaction is set as kinetic, therefore we need to specify the kinetic parameters such
as pre-exponential constants and activation energies of forward and backward reactions. Also, we
define ethanol as the base component and reaction occurs in liquid phase. Fig. 3.9 represents the
parameters that have been specified in HYSYS.

Figure 3.9: Adding the kinetic parameters

Adding the reaction to the column


Reaction sets in HYSYS can be attached to any stages in the column including the condenser,
reboiler, and side operations. In this case, the reaction occurs on all stages in the column. We add
the set of reaction that we have created before and we define the reaction stage (Fig. 3.10). The
solver is set to sparse continuation solver, a solver designed to handle three phase and reactive

distillation, which will be our simulation case. Finally, we run the column once again and we can view
the simulation results on the Performance tab (Fig 3.11).

The flowchart of the system from HYSYS is shown in Fig. 3.12. The simulation results and column
specifications from simulator HYSYS are listed in Table 3.2 and 3.3 respectively. The main product,
EtAc is obtained at 71.32mol% at the top of the RD column. It is necessary to mention that the
proposed system is not in its optimized state yet. In the next section, the sensitive analysis is
performed in order to determine the optimum configuration of RD column. The effects of six
parameters, feed temperature, number of stage, kinetic model, molar feed ratio, reflux ratio and
activity model, which have important influences in column duties, are examined in the process.

Figure 4.1: Comparison of different method of variation feed temperature

In general, increasing feed temperature will decrease the conversion of reactants and purity of the
product. The temperature in the column is around 80 C. If we feed the reactant with temperature
close to the column temperature, the equilibrium between phases will be affected. At higher
temperature, the phase equilibrium will shift to formation of vapor. Thus the vapor composition
inside the tray will increase. As we assume the reaction will occur only in liquid phase, this will lower
the conversion of ethanol and the yield of ethyl acetate. On the other hand, introducing the feed at
lower temperature will affect the phase equilibrium less inside the column. This viewpoint shows
good agreement with Taylor et al. [23] and Gorak et al [14].

Fig. 4.1 shows the variation of acetic acid feed temperature, TF0, ethanol feed temperature, TF1, and
both feed at same temperature, TF0=TF1. The variations of TF0 and TF0=TF1 affect the conversion as it
decreases with increasing feed temperature. The variation of TF1 is insensitive to ethanol conversion
as the conversion remains constant. From the graph, we can deduce that the temperature for the
both feeds of 20 C would be the best option.

Figure 4.3: Effect of number of stages to ethyl acetate purity

Fig. 4.2 and Fig. 4.3 represent the effect of number of stages to ethanol conversion and ethyl acetate
purity. As mentioned before, all the stages in the column are considered as reactive stages.
Therefore an increase in number of stages improves the conversion. It can be seen from 15 to 30
stages, the conversion of EtOH increase from 86.1 to 88.0% and purity of EtAc from 70.1 to 72.5%.
However, the increase from 30 to 50 stages is not really effective. The EtOH conversion and EtAc

purity do not change too much, give more or less the same value. This is because increasing stages
will increase the size of RD column and thus longer residence time. Therefore the optimal number of
stages for this case is 30.

Table 4.1: Kinetic models and simulation results.

The kinetic models from different references have been applied to the simulation and the results are
summarized in Table 4.1. Depending on kinetic model chosen, we specify the values for pre-
exponential factors, A and A and activation energies, Ea and Ea. Each kinetic model gives certain
values of rate constant k1 and k2 (Eq. 4.1), and these will affect the equation rate of reaction, r (Eq.
4.2) and consequently lead to the changing of concentration of the reaction products.


1 = ( ) 2 = ( ) (4.1)

= 1 2 2 (4.2)

Any change on concentration of reaction products gives different composition and this composition
will affect the phase equilibrium and therefore the final results. Among these models, kinetic model
2 gives the highest conversion of EtOH and purity of EtAc for this process. As the process for this
study is uncatalyzed reaction, it gives lower or no composition of product on catalyzed reactions
kinetic model, as can be seen in kinetic model 3 and 4. Hence, kinetic model 2 is the most favorable
to apply for our case.

Figure 4.4: Effect of molar feed ratio to conversion EtOH and purity EtAc

The effect of feed ratio of HAc to EtOH is shown in Fig. 4.4. As the molar feed ratio increases from
0.2 to 1.3, the conversion of EtOH increases linearly from 20 to 87%. This is due to the fact that when
the molar feed ratio increases, the concentration of HAc in the reaction section increases, shifting
the equilibrium reaction to forward reaction. Apart from that, EtAc purity decreases rapidly when
molar feed ratio raise from 1.3 to 10. As we know, esterification reaction of HAc with EtOH is
equimolar reaction, and excess unreacted HAc may be distillate with EtAc from the top of the
column, resulting in reducing the EtAc purity in the product. Hence, the best molar feed ratio of HAc
to EtOH is equimolar.

Figure 4.5: Effect of reflux ratio to EtOH conversion and EtAc purity

In this section, the effect of reflux ratio is analyzed as shown in Fig. 4.5. The increase of reflux ratio
from 0.5 to 2.5 increases linearly the EtOH conversion and EtAc purity. At low R, the product
separation is low and insufficient, thus limits the conversion. When the R is increased, more
unreacted reactants are recycled back to reaction zone as well as improve the separation efficiency,
thus more forward reaction. It also can be seen that the increase of R from 2.5 to 5, there is a
negative effect on EtOH conversion and EtAc purity. This is because the increase in R increases the
concentration of EtAc in the reaction section. According to equilibrium, the increase of EtAc
concentration at the reaction section shifts the equilibrium of esterification reaction to the backward
direction. As seen from the graph, the optimal reflux ratio is 2.5.

Effect of activity model

Fig. 4.6, 4.7, 4.8 and 4.9 show the composition of each component using different activity models. In
this part, each activity model (Wilson, UNIQUAC and NRTL) is changed and their effect on ethyl
acetate concentration is studied. For this case, we decided to extend until 50 stages to see better
behavior of these activity models. Stage 0 and 50 correspond to condenser and reboiler respectively.
In general, each activity model behaves almost similarly at the first 30 stages and after that it starts
to deviate. At this region, NRTL shows more deviation with respect to the other models. When the
vapor phase and the equilibrium between phases are very important, the activity model that
discriminates between vapor and liquid is affected and deviates more compared to the generic
models such as Wilson and UNIQUAC. From the graph of EtAc composition in Fig. 4.6, we can see
that NRTL (Non-Random Two Liquid) is the best activity model as it gives higher composition of EtAc
in the product.

Effect of rectifying and stripping stages

Simulation of Ethyl Acetate Synthesis via Reactive Distillation | Khairul Naim Bin Ahmad

In this section the effect non-reactive stripping and rectifying sections at the top and bottom is
investigated through sensitive analysis. Fig. 4.10 shows two different RD column configurations, the
first one is fully reactive column, which is our initial simulation case and the next one is RD column
with rectifying and stripping sections. The effect of rectifying and stripping stages is presented in the
graph in Fig. 4.11. From the figure we can see by introducing 1 stage for each rectifying and stripping
by maintaining the total stages in the column, the conversion of EtOH and purity of EtAc increase
from 86.6 to 91.4% and 71.3 to 76%. This can be explained by the fact that the rectifying and
stripping sections can enhance the recovery of reactant from the product, thus increasing the purity
of the product and conversion of reactant. However, it is only possible to obtain higher conversion of
EtOH and purity of EtAc compared to our initial case just until 3 stages. Beyond that, the EtOH
conversion of and EtAc purity decrease due to lack of reactive section. Therefore, we can deduce
that the optimal stage for rectifying and stripping for our process is 1.

Conclusions

A simulation of reactive distillation of synthesis of ethyl acetate was carried out using process
simulator Aspen HYSYS. We have studied the effects of different operation variables by performing
sensitive analysis. In conclusion, the optimal configuration of the RD column is achieved: the feed
temperature of 20 C, 30 stages column, kinetic model 2, the equimolar feed ratio, reflux ratio 2.5,
NRTL activity model and 1 stage for each rectifying and stripping sections.
