Abstract The Analytic Hierarchy Process is a known systematic approach to solve process design problems by structuring decisions hierarchically. The extension of this method presented in the paper is a combination of the Analytic Hierarchy Process with genetic algorithm. The technique is applied to a separation process design problem shown as a case study. The method has been developed for supporting multicriteria decision making and optimization by allowing inclusion of both economic and sustainability aspects into the conceptual process design.
