Unlike the traditional process design in which engineers are looking for low-cost options, environmental considerations include various objectives like the long-term and short-term environmental impacts. 1). 2) (Yang and Shi, 2000). It should be remembered that as we extend the traditional boundaries of process and plant design to include early decisions like material selections, the models and data available for the analysis are fraught with uncertainties. Therefore, to address sustainability at the plant level, we need to use multi-objective methods in the face of uncertainties.
