    Abstract

    In conceptual design, process routes can be compared and ranked by using inherent safety indices. In this paper inherent safety index methods presented in literature are compared and their properties and limitations discussed. As a case study, the evaluation of methyl methacrylate process routes is presented. In this case study the results of index methods are compared with expert evaluations of inherent safety level of process routes and the subprocesses included. Also the rankings of process routes given by indices are compared with expert evaluations.
