Subjectgreen process design, process selection, decision-making, produced water, offshore, and life cycle analysis
AbstractSustainable development and environmental protection require green products, processes, and waste management strategies. The selection and design of green and clean processes and products involve handling a huge set of data related to the environment, economics and technologies. Therefore, it is essential to employ a comprehensive technique to guide decision-making under uncertainty that can incorporate these factors. The paper presents decision-making under uncertainty based on life cycle analysis and considering environmental, technological, and economical drivers in the analysis. The methodology, GreenPro-1, is applicable at any stage of a process design and can be used to evaluate the environmental burdens of a product or a process throughout its life cycle, and to identify and assess opportunities to make improvements. A weighting scheme is used to integrate various criteria and policies so that a most appropriate alternative can be selected.
