Abstract (english): The simulation-based multi-objective structural and parameter optimization of continuous chemical production processes is a complex task. To provide a universally applicable optimization tool, the Advanced Process Optimizer was developed and intensively tested in cooperation with different industrial partners over several years. The superstructure can be directly built in a commercial flowsheet simulator. The resulting Generalized Disjunctive Programming formulation of the optimization problem was handled through a combination of newly developed and adapted methods. In order to validate the efficiency of the developed optimization tool the example of a dimethyl ether production process was chosen. The optimization results are compared to a reference solution achieved by conventional approaches and show a significant reduction of both the investment and operating costs.
