|Abstract: ||The process and manufacturing plants usually consume huge amounts cf water in various cleaning and rinsing operations.Waste water contains pollutants that are frequently environmentally regulated.An effective way to minimize waste water is to design a waste water reuse network(WWRN)such that,the water can be reused to a maximum extent in the same plant.In this research,a mathematical approach is introduced to design an optimal network where multiple pollutants are contained in water streams. The approach is general,systematic,and easy to use.This applicability is demonstrated by designing WWRN for electroplating processes.Water systems often allow efficient water uses via water reuse and/or, recirculation.Defining the layout connecting water using processes is complex problem which involves several criteria to optimize,frequently accomplished using Water Pinch technology.Optimizing freshwater flow rates entering the system. In this paper,a multi objective optimization model considering two criteria is presented:(i) the minimization of freshwater consumption and (ii)the minimization of the cost cf the infrastructure required to build the network that make possible reduction of freshwater consumption.The optimization model considers water reuse between operation and waste water treatment as the main optimization mechanism.|
