We consider multiobjective optimization problems arising from super-structure formulation of Simulated Moving Bed (SMB) processes. SMBs are widelyused in many industrial separations of chemical products and they are challengingfrom the optimization point of view. We employ efficient interactive multiobjec-tive optimization which enables considering several conflicting objectives simulta-neously without unnecessary simplifications as have been done in previous studies.The interactive IND-NIMBUS software combined with the IPOPT optimizer is usedto solve multiobjective SMB design problems. The promising results of solving asuperstructure SMB optimization problem with four objectives demonstrate the use-fulness of the approach.
