(500f) A Consolidated/Unified Framework for Computer-Aided Process Synthesis-Intensification
In this work, we describe a unified framework that brings together several of these approaches that build on fundamental descriptors and phenomena-based building blocks [2-6]. The framework provides a workflow that will guide the users to employ the most appropriate of the process options available via: (i) the identification of candidate phenomena, tasks and unit operations, (ii) the automated generation of multiple intensified/non-intensified alternatives, and (iii) the flowsheet screening and optimization. Through examples, we illustrate the efficacy of the framework for the design and discovery of novel and intensified alternatives.
