Optimization of a complex water reuse network in a Kenyan industrial site

Background:

Fresh water is one of the main natural resources used excessively by manufacturing industries. To minimize the fresh water uptake, industries can recycle and reuse water in different processes that require different water quality. Moreover, industries can benefit from symbiosis relations with neighboring industries and exchange the used water.

Designing a water reuse network is not a trivial task considering the complexity of water streams in terms of quality and flow rate variations. Global optimization methods can be applied to find an optimum water reuse network.

Project description:

This special course is part of the Gecko project (Green and circular innovation for Kenyan companies). Gecko is a Danida-funded pilot research project (2018-2020) and aims at providing scientific knowledge base for developing a national strategy for designing and projecting high-circular eco-industrial parks in Kenya.

The main purpose of this special course is to investigate methods for optimizing the design of a water reuse network in an existing industrial site in Kenya.

The main tasks of this special course are as following:

-   Performing literature study on optimization methods used to design water reuse networks

-  Evaluating different methods and selecting a method based on performance, efficiency and complexity

-  Developing a global optimization strategy to design a water reuse network for the case study in Kenya

Requirements

Familiar with global optimization algorithms
