Discharge of industrial wastes constitutes one of the primary threats to the environment. A sustainable approach to handling industrial wastes is the adoption of integration and monetization schemes through the concept of an eco-industrial park (EIP). An EIP involving hydrocarbons is a particular case known as a carbon−hydrogen−oxygen symbiosis network (CHOSYN). Special features of the CHOSYN involve the conversion of wastes into value-added chemicals and the ability to perform multiscale targeting that benchmarks the performance from the atomic scale to large-scale implementation. In this work, several optimization models have been developed to address certain aspects in the CHOSYN design. These aspects include economic, safety and sustainability. In addition to developing a storage and dispatch system to address multiperiod operations in the CHOSYN.
