Abstract
Process sustainability is one of the major concerns in the process systems engineering area. Addressing this concept inevitably requires a multi-objective analysis to evaluate the social and environmental impacts in addition to the usual economic performance objective. Furthermore, the final sustainability of the proposed solutions very often depends on uncertain conditions, especially in the very frequent case that renewable resources are considered in order to enhance environmental sustainabil...
