A Goal Programming Approach for Plastic Recycling System in Thailand

  title={A Goal Programming Approach for Plastic Recycling System in Thailand},
  author={Wuthichai Wongthatsanekorn},
Plastic waste is a big issue in Thailand, but the amount of recycled plastic in Thailand is still low due to the high investment and operating cost. Hence, the rest of plastic waste are burnt to destroy or sent to the landfills. In order to be financial viable, an effective reverse logistics infrastructure is required to support the product recovery activities. However, there is a conflict between reducing the cost and raising environmental protection level. The purpose of this study is to… CONTINUE READING
