Environmental Optimization Using the WAste Reduction Algorithm (WAR)
MARTIN, T. M. AND D. M. YOUNG. Environmental Optimization Using the WAste Reduction Algorithm (WAR). U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/F-11/027, 2012.
To inform the public
Traditionally chemical process designs were optimized using purely economic measures such as rate of return. EPA scientists developed the WAste Reduction algorithm (WAR) so that environmental impacts of designs could easily be evaluated. The goal of WAR is to reduce environmental and related human health impacts at the design stage.
