# stream containing 180 kmol/h of propylene (C3H6) is mixed with a stream holding 210 kmol/h of CO and 210 kmol/h H2. The two streams are mixed with a recycle stream coming from the overhead of a separator. The recycle stream contains pure propylene. A single pass conversion of 30% propylene is attained. The desired product butanal (C4H8O) is removed in a bottom stream; unreacted CO and H2 are removed from the separator column. Unreacted C3H6 is recovered and recycled. Calculate the production rate of C4H8O and the flow rate of the recycle stream. (180, 420 kmol/h) The following reaction is taking place: C3H6 + CO+H2 C4H8O
