Analysis of effects of an objective function on environmental and economic performance of a water network system using life cycle assessment and life cycle costing methods



Analysis of effects of an objective function on environmental and economic performance of a water network system using life cycle assessment and life cycle costing methods



Chemical Engineering Journal 4(3): 368-378



Water network synthesis has been used to conserve water resources and reduce economic costs. In this study, all contributors to environmental burdens and economic costs of water network systems were estimated to analyze the effects of objective functions on their environmental and economic performances. A total freshwater flowrate-minimized water network system (FWNS) and a total freshwater cost-minimized water network system (CWNS) were independently synthesized.
