A Novel Optimization Model for Location of Waste Transfer Stations
Waste transfer stations play an important role in waste disposal. This paper proposed a novel model for optimization location of waste transfer stations in environmental monitoring. With the considering of requirements, total system cost and the effect to the environment, an optimization model is given for the positions of waste transfer stations. An algorithm is proposed to solve the optimization model and the evaluation function can obtain the minimal value. The efficiency and the accuracy of the proposed algorithm are shown in several numerical examples..
