Abstract

VARON VALENCIA, Katherine; OREJUELA CABRERA, Juan Pablo  and  MANYOMA VELASQUEZ, Pablo César. MATHEMATICAL MODEL FOR TRANSFER STATION LocATION OF URBAN SOLID WASTE. Rev.EIA.Esc.Ing.Antioq [online]. 2015, n.23, pp.61-70. ISSN 1794-1237.

Transfer Stations are facilities dedicated to management, and solid waste transfer of a vehicle to another with greater capacity, which transports them to their place of use or disposal. The main purpose of the research is to represent the location of these kind facilities through a model of mixed integer linear programming, which consider different characteristics of stations such as total capacity and materials recovery. Total costs minimization is the main objective. To do this, we minimize opening fixed costs, transportation costs and operating costs evaluated at the current time through a function of present cost equivalent.

Keywords : Transfer Stations; Materials Recovery; Location Problem; Mixed Integer Linear Programming.
