The chemical product substitution process is undertaken by chemical industries for complying with regulations, like REACH in Europe. Initially devoted to chemists, chemicals substitution is nowadays a complex process involving corporate, business and engineering stakeholders across the chemical enterprise for orienting the search toward a sustainable solution. We formalize a decision making process framework dedicated to the sustainable chemical product design activity in an industrial context… Expand
Enterprise Decision-making Framework for Chemical Product Design in Integrated Biorefineries
TLDR
A framework is proposed to facilitate the decision-making involved in the overall chemical product design and production process by integrating four major organisational units of an enterprise: corporate unit, business unit, research and development (R&D) unit and production unit. Expand
Systematic decision making methodology for chemical product design in integrated biorefineries
TLDR
A decision making methodology that integrates four major organizational units of a company: corporate unit, business unit, research and development unit, and production unit is proposed, which designs product that fulfils customer requirements, determines conversion pathways that convert biomass into the product, and identifies product demand and price while fulfilling the company’s goals.

Computer Aided Process Engineering for Sustainability Analysis of Food Production
We propose a dedicated tool that permits the evaluation of food production process sustainability, in particular virgin olive oil process. It is based on an integrated process-product-enterpriseExpand
Decision-support challenges in the chemical-pharmaceutical industry: Findings and future research directions
TLDR
The findings reveal a lack of research addressing the most prominent trends currently driving this sector, such as patient centricity or new technological developments, thus highlighting the disruptive nature of the expected changes in a highly conservative industry. Expand
Decision Making Approach for Industrial Ecology : Layout and Commercialization of an Industrial Park
One of the industrial ecology ful fillments is the concept of eco-industrial park (EIP). This cooperative approach leads to a more resources-efficient production system at the park scale, namely aExpand

Implementation of green chemistry principles in circular economy system towards sustainable development goals: Challenges and perspectives.
TLDR
A new categorizing system for GCP is developed, and the prospects of disciplinary elements including the establishment of redesign-reduction-recovery-recycle-reuse (5R) practices for wastes reclamation, deployment of water-energy-food nexus with GCP to improve the food security and resource sustainability, and implementation of GCP in the green smart industrial park are discussed. Expand
Computer aided product design tool for sustainable product development
TLDR
A computer aided product design (CAPD) tool is proposed that finds mixtures matching target properties with specific coding of hydrogen-suppressed atoms that can be used with various property estimation models where atom connectivity information is required. Expand
