Resumen: Among recently proposed production routes for mass chemicals from renewable resources the preparation of oxidized C6 chemicals, such as adipic acid, from glucose seems particularly at-tractive: On the one hand the natural C6 chain including functionality is preserved. On the other hand, linear C6 chemicals that are currently produced from mineral oil, require high efforts and inefficiencies if produced from alternative resources, such as natural gas. From patent literature it can be concluded that Rennovia Inc. owns a leading technology for manufacturing adipic acid from glucose. In a previous project a Aspen Plus® Simulation for the two-step synthesis of adipic acid was built upon the Rennovia patent. The aim of this project is to complement the previous one, particularly regarding separation and purification of adipic acid, recovery of acetic acid, and an overall optimization of heat integration.
