LINEAR PROGRAMMING IN HAZARDOUS WASTE MANAGEMENT.
Linear programming techniques are applied to investigate the relative costs of regional and state-wide hazardous waste management schemes. The focus is the identification of a cost effective configuration of transportation routes, transfer stations, processing facilities and secure long-term storage impoundments. Wastes generated in North Carolina are studied as a useful example of linear programming applications in general and options available within a given state in particular. The value of the techniques are highlighted, as are their limitations.
