This paper considers an approach to multi-objective optimization of production of petroleum derivatives using the differential evolution algorithm. A fuzzy multi-objective linear model of production of petroleum derivatives is considered as the subject of research. The paper consists of the following parts: an introduction, a statement of problem, and a description of the method with application to a real refinery plant. The results of the application of the suggested method to solve a real multi-objective optimization problem have demonstrated its advantages over the other methods for the same purpose.
