Resumo: The integration of reaction and separation into a single process unit, i. e., reactive destillation, may offer several advantages over conventional systems that use a reactor followed by a distillation column. In this paper we explore the operational characteristics of reactive distillation and highlight some of this potential benefits, using the production of ethyl acetate as an illustrative example. With this aim, the two types of system are compared employing different reactor types and a number of performance indicators, such as yield, conversion, purity, specific energy consumption and residence time. A sensitivity analysis is carried out on some variables and parameters, in order to explore and define the distillation columns operating conditions. As expected, results point to a clear advantage of reactive distillation allowing for the azeotrope to be surpassed and for the overcoming of chemical equilibrium, favouring an increase in conversion and product purity, along with reduced operating costs.
