Paper Title:
Optimization of Inlet Temperature of Methanol Synthesis Reactor of LURGI Type
  Abstract

This paper presents an optimization study of inlet temperature of methanol synthesis reactor of LURGI type by using commercial simulator Aspen Plus and Aspen Energy Analyzer. The optimization routine is coupled to a steady-state model of the methanol synthesis reactor. By investigating the influences on methanol production and heat exchanger network synthesis, the inlet temperature of the reactor is optimized. when the inlet temperature is 230°C, the economic benefits of the methanol plant is maximized which could be increased by $ 44883.28/ year.
