Abstract—This paper proposed a novel integrated design of azeotropic mixtures distillation process based on mechanical vapor recompression (MVR). The extractive distillation of acetone – methanol binary system that forms a homogeneous minimum – boiling azeotrope was studied. Based on the simulation result, the total energy consumption of the proposed sequence is 62% less than the existing extractive distillation configuration.

Index Terms—Mechanical vapor recompression, MVR, heat integration, azeotropic distillation, extractive distillation.
