SUSCAPE. improving process SUStainability using Computer Aided Process Engineering tools
SUSCAPE. developing quantitative tools based on mathematical programming
SUSCAPE. designing and planning sustainable processes



In SUSCAPE we focus primarily on the development of quantitative tools based on mathematical programming to address the design and planning of sustainable processes. Our approach relies on the combined use of multi-criteria mixed-integer modeling techniques and Life Cicle Assessment principles, a framework that enables us to systematize the identification of process alternatives leading to environmental savings.
