This paper addresses the optimum design of water utilization systems when a single contaminant is present. The application of the necessary conditions of optimality allows an LP or MILP formulation depending on the objective function of choice. Several examples are presented to illustrate the proposed methodology and to point out that several alternative solutions are available. 

Financial Risk Management in the Design of Water Utilization Systems in Process Plants

This paper discusses techniques to design water utilization systems in process plants when the parameters, especially the loads of the contaminants, are uncertain. Financial risk management in such

COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF DIFFERENT ASSUMPTIONS FOR THE DESIGN OF SINGLE-CONTAMINANT WATER NETWORKS

One common assumption used in the design of water/wastewater systems for single components is to fix the process outlet concentrations of the pollutant to its maximum allowed value. This converts the

System Analysis and Optimization of Multi-Contaminant Water Reuse Network with and without Regeneration using a Hybrid Genetic Algorithm

Water is a key element for the normal functioning of many industries. It is intensively utilised in food, pulp or paper, pharmaceutical, petrochemical and chemical industries, and so on. The
