TECHNO-ECONOMIC EVALUATION OF RESIDUE EXHAUSTION IN BATCH RECTIFICATION ETHANOL PRODUCTION PLANT

ABSTRACT
This paper presents the techno-economic optimization of batch plant for production of rectified alcohol based on the concentration of ethanol in residue. The aim of the analysis was to determine the extent to which it is economically profitable to exhaust the residual liquid in boiler. The "profit production" criterion is used for calculations.
