Abstract A group contribution equation of state called PSRK (Predictive Soave-Redlich-Kwong) which is based on the Soave-Redlich-Kwong equation (Soave, 1972) has been developed. It uses the UNIFAC method to calculate the mixture parameter a and includes all already existing UNIFAC parameters. This concept makes use of recent developments by Michelsen (1990b) and has the main advantage, that vapor-uquid-equilibria (VLB) can be predicted for a large number of systems without introducing new model parameters that must be fitted to experimental VLB-data. The PSRK equation of state can be used for VLB-predictions over a much larger temperature and pressure range than the UNIFAC γ-ϕ-approach and is easily extended to mixtures containing supercritical compounds. Additional PSRK parameters, which allow the calculation of gas/gas and gas/alkane phase equilibria, are given in this paper. In addition to those mixtures covered by UNIFAC, phase equilibrium calculations may also include gases like CH 4 C 2H 6, C 3H 6, c 4H 10, CO 2, N 2, H 2 and CO.
