AB - © 2018 Elsevier B.V. Software tools for process simulation and optimization have increasingly been used in industry to design and operate complex, highly interconnected plants. This allows the design of industrial plants to be profitable and to meet quality, safety, environmental and other standards. The aim of this work is to create a platform to simulate industrial sugarcane first generation process. Brazilian sugarcane industry is a well known process with many parameters available from industrial and literature data. The current first generation process seems to have reached the state of art and not great improvements seams to emerge nowadays. However engineering research has dedicated great efforts recently to improve efficiency through the use of industrial and agricultural residues. Most of these studies are related to the use of lignocellulosic material and vinasse. In this context an easy and simple platform has been developed to provide reliable outputs that could provide data for the studies of viability, social and environmental impacts when an additional process are interconnected to the first generation plant. The model has been validated using industrial data in order to attain the most realistic outputs.
