In this work we presented the application of a new bio-inspired metaheuristic approach, called the Flower Pollination Algorithm, in the calculation of dew point pressures of a system exhibiting double retrograde vaporization. The main idea of this manuscript is to apply a new algorithmic structure in a hard nonlinear algebraic system arising from real-world situations. The results indicate that the Flower Pollination algorithm is capable to obtain all roots (pressures and molar fractions of liquid phase)
