|Abstract:||The issues of waste generation in batch process plants differ in many aspects to continuous plants. Despite the smaller-scale of processing, complexities from unsteady state profiles, discontinuities, and run-to-run variations make waste minimization in batch plant more challenging. In this paper, we present a systematic methodology for waste minimization analysis of a batch process. The methodology consists of three fundamental elements: process graph (P graph) for process recipe assessment and path flow analysis of waste material and cause-and-effect and functional knowledge for evaluating the process recipe and equipment variables connectivity. The application of the methodology is illustrated through an alcohol washing case study.|
