Steady-State Analysis of Pollutants-Confining Reaction System
A pollutants-confining reaction system is proposed to prevent the environmental pollution problems caused by the waste materials from chemical reactors. In this reaction system, the formed by-products and the unreacted raw components are confined in the reactor, and only the product components can be collected. The by-products which are formed by parallel reactions can be preserved at some constant concentrations. Other by-products which are formed together with the product components are converted into the raw components by adding proper reactions. The product components are collected by using separation mechanisms such as membrane filters. This reaction system can be called an ideal reactor because all of the raw components are converted into the product components without environmental pollution. In this paper, a steady-state analysis is performed and the practical conditions are derived.
