Process Synthesis by the P-Graph Framework Involving Sustainability

B. Bertok,  and I. Heckl     University of Pannonia, Veszprem, Hungary

Abstract

A computer-aided methodology for process synthesis is introduced here by utilizing the P-graph (process graph) framework. A process system or network endeavors to create certain products from raw materials using a number of processing steps. Process synthesis determines the structure of a process system. Examples of said networks range from food processing plants through chemical production to energy production networks. The P-graph methodology is a graph-theoretical approach utilized for solving process network synthesis problems. The P-graphs are bipartite graphs, each comprising nodes ...
