A regional approach for optimization of the municipal waste management system using fuzzy sets
In the context of complexity in permanent growing of the problems and standards, the area of municipal waste management is in an accelerated evolution process. As the number of municipal waste management alternatives increase, the selection of the best waste management system- that is to decide on the combination of collection, processing and disposal techniques that will best serve the present and future needs of a community- become a more difficult task for local authorities. Consequently, mathematical modelling techniques have been introduced to waste management in order to help the decision makers from this area. This paper presents a fuzzy optimization model for the development of an integrated waste management system at the regional level. Based on the options investigated in the model the end-users will be able to select and develop investments projects at local and county level in the aim of achieving the targets of the region.
