Sustainability nowadays has become new evolution of quality and efficiency indicator for product and process. Key performance of certain product or process need to be quantified throughout it is life cycle. Polymer processing is one of the chemical processes that need attention in term of sustainability. Hence this paper presents the development of sustainability framework for assessing the sustainability performance of hollow fiber membrane module by considering the reaction of each raw material and process involved. Assessment was carried out by applying fuzzy logic approach by developing its linguistic variables and fuzzy code according the requirement. A framework to assess the sustainability performance for hollow fiber membrane processing was proposed in order to identify its sustainability score for each sustainability element; environmental, economical and social.
