Abstract

This thesis delivers new experimental vapour-liquid equilibrium data for alternative refrigerants with lower global warming potential to help test and improve existing predictive models. Additionally, a unique high-pressure cryogenic distillation column was built to collect separation efficiencies data for natural gas to investigate the accuracy of existing efficiency correlations commonly used in the industry. The unique data collected with this cryogenic column provide new pathways for industry to develop better descriptions of dynamic processes central to high-pressure cryogenic distillation.
