The optimal synthesis of zeotropic efficient distillation processes is addressed in this paper. The reversible distillation sequence model (RDSM) is rigorously approximated by a sequence of adiabatic units. Alternative superstructures representations involving different energy distributions are proposed for approximating the RDSM. The efficient distillation synthesis problem is formulated as a rigorous tray-by-tray mixed-integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) problem.
