    Industrial symbiosis plays an important role in the process industry, where an effective management of resources can bring both economic and environmental benefits. Traditionally, the design and extension of eco-industrial ...
  • Optimal design and planning multi resource-based energy integration in process industries 

    Morakabatchiankar, Shabnam; Mele, Fenando D.; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (Elsevier, 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Recently, process industries have experienced a significant pressure to shift from centralized energy supplying systems to the in-situ exploitation of renewable resources. Special attention has been paid to multi resource-based ...
  • Synthesis and assessment of waste-to-resource routes for circular economy 

    Pacheco López, Adrian; Somoza Tornos, Ana; Muñoz Mata, Edrisi; Capon Garcia, Elisabeth; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (Elsevier, 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The benefits of the circular economy paradigm have been proven during the past two decades, but its application poses some challenges that still need to be tackled. This contribution presents a systematic way to generate ...
  • Modeling framework for joint product and process synthesis with material recovery opportunities 

    Somoza Tornos, Ana; Chen, Qi; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio; Grossmann, Ignacio (Elsevier, 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The circular economy paradigm requires process synthesis to be expanded beyond the consideration of production activities aimed at market needs and to integrate valorization processes upcycling waste from different sources ...
  • A MILP model for enhancing wastewater networks by introducing reclaimed wastewater usage 

    Lechtenberg, Fabian; Somoza Tornos, Ana; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are an example of available but underutilized waste-to-resource processes. Economic benefit opportunities can be generated through the design and operation of WWTPs following a circular ...
  • Improving photo-Fenton process by hydrogen peroxide dosage strategies. Dissolved oxygen performance indicator 

    Yu, Xiangwei; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Miralles Cuevas, Sara; Cabrera Reina, Alejandro; Pérez Moya, Montserrat (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Fenton and photo-Fenton are Advanced Oxidation processes driven by the supply of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). However, excessive hydrogen peroxide supply results in unproductive reactions and causes the process performance ...
  • Optimal Design and planning supply chains of multi renewable resource-based energy/material applied in process industries 

    Morakabatchiankar, Shabnam; Mele, Fenando D.; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this work, the effects of multi renewable resource-based energy integration in material supply chains are analysed under stochastic and deterministic conditions. The proposed approach is based on the development of a ...
  • Systematic generation and evaluation of waste-to-resource alternatives 

    Pacheco López, Adrian; Somoza Tornos, Ana; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Circular economy appears to be the only suitable approach for closing the materials loop and so to make sustainable current development levels. In this work, a procedure to systematically generate a list of ...
  • Modeling and simulation of complex nonlinear dynamic processes using data based models: application to photo-Fenton process 

    Shokry Abdelaleem Taha Zied, Ahmed; Audino, Francesca; Vicente, Patricia; Escudero Bakx, Gerard; Pérez Moya, Montserrat; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (Elsevier, 2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper investigates data based modelling of complex nonlinear processes, for which a first principle model useful for process monitoring and control is not available. These empirical models may be used as soft sensors ...
  • Modelling decision support systems using conceptual constraints: linking process systems engineering and decision making models 

    Dombayci, Canan; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents the use of a Conceptual Constraint (CC) Domain to systematize the construction of Decision Making Models (DMMs). The modelling systematics include the integration between the CC Domain and production ...
  • Multiparametric metamodels for model predictive control of chemical processes 

    Shokry Abdelaleem Taha Zied, Ahmed; Dombayci, Canan; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (Elsevier, 2016)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This work proposes a Data-Based MultiParametric-Model Predictive Control (DBMPMPC) methodology, which enables simple implementations of explicit MPC in situations when the deep mathematical knowledge required to develop ...
  • An optimization model for the long-term planning of energy distribution networks 

    Somoza Tornos, Ana; Pozo Fernández, Carlos; Hoz Casas, Jordi de la; Guillén Gosálbez, Gonzalo; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio; Graells Sobré, Moisès (2016)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Although design is a problem that has been addressed in the literature, maintaining, upgrading and expanding energy distribution networks along the entire life-cycle is a topic that has received scarce attention. The problem ...
