Abstract

A computer-aided methodology has been developed for the design of blended (mixture) products. Through this methodology, it is possible to identify the most suitable chemicals for blending, and “tailor” the blend according to specified product needs. The methodology has three stages: 1) product design, 2) process identification, and 3) experimental verification. The principle problem, which is the product design stage is divided into four sub-problems and solved with a decomposition-based approach. In stage two, the ability to produce the chemicals used as building blocks in the blends is analyzed. Finally, experimental work (or detailed model-based verification) is conducted in stage three to validate the selected blend candidates. In this study, the product design stage is highlighted through a case study of gasoline blends with bio-based chemicals. The objective of this study is to identify blended gasoline products that match (or improve) the performance of the conventional gasoline.
