Abstract

A hierarchical approach is presented to estimate the sustainability- potential of the alternative synthetic routes for a chemical to be manufactured. The notion of sustainability-potential is a generalization of the notion of profit-potential,1 the estimation of which renders it possible to screen out economically non-viable processes derived from the alternative synthetic routes at the earliest stage.
