Abstract

In this paper, we introduce inherent safety in the design of chemical processes. We selected three safety index with different characteristics, together with the total annualized cost. While the interpretation of results in a large multidimensional space is difficult we propose an objective reduction through a Principal Component Analysis (PCA). The multiobjective optimization of a distillation column sequence is used as a case study, and some guidelines are provided with the objective of considering both safety and economic aspects in the choice of the design.
