  • An algebraic targeting approach to resource conservation via material recycle/reuse

    In this paper, an algebraic approach to the targeting of material recycle/reuse is developed. A cascade analysis is developed to maximise the recycle of process streams. Feasibility constraints and optimality conditions are derived based on insights from the graphical representation of material recycle pinch diagrams. The devised method is non-iterative, systematic and leads to the identification ...
