Engineering design and system operating comprise highly innovative and knowledge-intensive tasks in the design of an eco-industrial park. Efficient information exchange and communication among distributed parties are very important for a business to succeed. Building a well-structured framework for data/information streamlining and processing is an urgent task in order to achieve further process simulation and optimization in the eco-industrial parks. This paper presents a study of ontological representation for an eco-industrial system, and its deployment on a knowledge-based software platform. The contributions of this work include: Firstly, an ontology model for the relevant chemical process is built relying on the ontological framework provided by OntoCAPE. Secondly, a surrogate modeling method is adopted and implemented for the industrial system. Finally, a Graphical User Interface (GUI), acting as an operating platform, is developed based on the proposed software architectural design. A case study is carried out to demonstrate the chemical process simulation and information query on this platform.
