Antmann, Nurcin Celik*, Xiaoran Shi, and Yading Dai Department of Industrial Engineering, The University of Miami, Coral Gables, FL, USA *Telephone: (305) 284-2391, E-mail: celik@miami.edu Abstract Solid waste produced as a by-product of our daily activities poses a major threat to societies as populations grow and economic development(More)
During this reporting period, work focused on the completion of the modeling component of the proposed simulation and optimization framework. These activities included the expansion of the hybrid agent-discrete simulation model whose seeds were planted during our earlier work on Simulation-Based Optimization Framework for Solid Waste Management and(More)
Over the past decades, the volume and diversity of municipal solid waste (MSW) generated by the United States have risen significantly. Together with increasing environmental regulations, these pressures have made solid waste management (SWM) a critical issue for communities. SWM systems are highly complex, requiring a variety of facilities and transfer(More)
Sludge generation during wastewater treatment is inevitable even with proper management and treatment. Yet proper handling and disposal of sludge are still challenging in terms of treatment cost, presence of recalcitrant contaminants of concern, sanitary issues, and public acceptance. Conventional disposal methods (i.e. landfilling, incineration) have(More)
