Our project team developed and tested an Aspen Plus simulation for a liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) process to determine its viability for predicting experimental results. The simulation predictions were experimentally verified at laboratory scale for three different extraction scenarios. Having confirmed the adequacy of the Aspen model, a LLE methodology was developed to demonstrate how to separate and purify organic compounds. The simulation can now be used to predict the optimal operating conditions to reduce overall operational costs.
