Methodology for Sustainable Process Design

A methodology to generate new sustainable design alternatives has been developed and can be applied in any chemical and biochemical industrial process.

This tool is particularly useful for retrofitting studies. The methodology identifies the critical points in the process related to energy consumption, raw materials consumption, water consumption, environmental impact reduction and safety. Once those points are identified, sustainable design targets are set and new process (retrofit) alternatives that match the targets are generated and evaluated to identify the optimal more sustainable process design.

The activity-flow diagram for this methodology is shown in Figure 5.1. There are two working process options: continuous operation and batch operation.
