Abstract

Ensuring sustainability during production of chemicals and related products has become an ever-growing challenge due to rising demand for sustainability. Thus, there is a need to look for innovative solutions that are not only economic and efficient but also sustainable. Process intensification as an integrated part of process synthesis & design has the potential to determine more sustainable and innovative solutions. In this paper, a multi-stage and multi-level computer aided framework to perform sustainable process synthesis, design and intensification is presented. The framework employs a phenomena-based technique, which is capable of generating innovative, more sustainable and non-trade off solutions for any existing process flowsheet or a totally new process. In this paper, the framework is further extended in terms of application range validated through a case study for production of bio (enzyme-based conversion) succinic acid from multiple feed options. The case study highlights the generation of a novel superstructure of alternatives, from which an optimal processing route under different scenarios is determined. This optimal processing route is further improved through phenomena-based technique to generate innovative, more sustainable and intensified alternatives for the production of bio succinic acid.
