Trends and Advances in Optimization-based Approaches for Process Systems Engineering

In this talk we first provide a general overview of mathematical programming and its relation to process systems engineering. Next, we present recent advances in logic-based optimization that have allowed the solution of large-scale synthesis and scheduling problems, and for which several examples will be presented. Finally, we discuss the need of broadening the scope of process systems engineering and identify as important trends product design, systems biology, supply chain optimization and sustainable development. For each of these we present examples of recent work in which optimization-based approaches have had a significant impact.
