An improved multi-objective programming with augmented ε-constraint method for hazardous waste location-routing problem
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-05-31)
Hazardous waste location-routing problems are of importance due to the potential risk for nearby residents and the environment. In this paper, an improved mathematical formulation is developed based upon a multi-objective mixed integer programming approach. The model aims at assisting decision makers in selecting locations for different facilities including treatment plants, recycling plants and ...
Location-based analysis and optimization of service network performance: A case study
(Peer reviewed; Book; Chapter, 2018-05-07)
The location problem of service network has been extensively focused by researchers in operational research due to the difficulty in balancing the level of service and efficiency. On the one hand, installing a large number of service facilities within the service network improves availability and responsiveness to customer demands, but it also increases the investment and operating cost. While on ...
A value chain analysis for bioenergy production from biomass and biodegradable waste: a case study in Northern Norway
(Peer reviewed; Chapter, 2018-09-12)
During the past decades, the concerns of the depletion of fossil fuels and global warming caused by excess GHG emissions have become the most important driving force for the development and utilization of renewable energy resources. The successful experiences from the EU-28 have proved that bioenergy production from biomass and biodegradable waste is the most reliable and promising solution in ...
