Application of heat pumps at separation processes like distillation, absorption, and crystallization could result in large energy and economic savings. DSTI (Dutch Separation Technology Institute) recently announced the start of the project ‘Heat pumps in bulk separation processes’. This project will be executed together with Huntsman, Aker Kvaerner, DSM, Akzo Nobel, Lyondell, ECN, and Delft University. The objective is to increase the energy efficiency of bulk separation processes by integration of so called high temperature lift heat pumps. A fully integrated system consisting of traditional distillation and novel heat pump technology should be the end result.
