Research has illustrated the benefits of using machine learning surrogate models as substitutes for computationally expensive models during optimisation. This paper extends recent research into optimising chemical plant design and operation. The study further explores Surrogate Assisted Genetic Algorithms (SA-GA) in more complex variants of the original plant design and optimisation problems, such as the inclusion of parallel and feedback components.
