Abstract: Growing environmental issues have motivated technological advances to reduce pollution from chemical processing plants. These include the use of process simulators to design an environmentally benign process that minimises the plant emissions. While these simulators offer a convenient way of simulating the plant's performance, currently they have limited innate capability to support environmental studies. In this article, we present a novel framework that integrates expert system with process simulator and mathematical optimisation as a means for waste minimisation analysis and decision support. We illustrate the framework by solving a literature case study involving hydrocarbon separation process. Copyright © 2009 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
