The main goal of this project is development of a sustainable mixed-integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) solution methodology for the synthesis of new processes or the innovative retrofit of the existing ones. The emphasis will be given to the integration of the phenomena of the environment preservation, process safety and economical effectiveness into the methodology for process development. The objective is to improve the current efficiency of the existing small, medium or large scale processes to increase their market competition and to upgrade their environmental sustainability with respect to energy consumption and the reduction of their environmental impact. The following activities are propose to accomplish the task integrally: 1. Development of a computer framework and strategies to propose feasible and sustainable design and compound alternatives (molecular modeling, heat and energy integration, batch, continuous and hybrid modes of operation) 2. Integration of the problems of process safety into MINLP methodology 3. An efficient economic flowsheet optimization based on disjunctive MINLP models for real-world capital cost functions. Proposed project will support and extend the actual project SLO-US 007 by means of the inclusion of process safety and process economy into the extended MINLP methodology. The objectives of the projects are in accordance with the demand of the sustainable development on the one side, and with the needs of the development of the integrated computerized systems for process design on the other side. In this sense the co-ordination with partners from EU is already established in order to prepare the proposal for Fifth Framework Programme.
