The batch distillation process has existed for many centuries. It is perhaps the oldest technology for separating or purifying liquid mixtures and is the most frequently used separation method in batch processes.
In the last 25 years, with continuous development of faster computers and sophisticated numerical methods, there have been many published works using detailed mathematical models with rigorous physical property calculations and advanced optimisation techniques to address several important issues, such as selection of column configurations, design, operation, off-cut recycling, use of batch distillation in reactive and extractive modes, etc.
