A new configuration of the chemical reaction heat pump system using 2-propanol dehydrogenation and acetone hydrogenation reactions was proposed in this study. To overcome the intrinsic thermodynamic limitation of chemical reaction heat pump systems, the reactive distillation process was adopted. Through the experimental study, the new configuration showed the better performance compared to previous ones. This study revealed a new design possibility of the thermodynamically efficient and economically feasible chemical reaction heat pump system.
