Abstract
(EN)



Embodiments of the present disclosure include processes and systems
for recovering alkylene oxide. System embodiments include a stripping section
(202) located in an alkylene oxide recovery column to convert a feed stream
comprising to a first gas phase portion comprising alkylene oxide, a
condensing
zone comprising at least a first condenser (207) and a second condenser (209)
configured in series, and a reabsorption region (204) located in the alkylene
oxide
recovery column above the last of the at least two condensers.
