New methodology for hazardous waste classification using fuzzy set theory Part II. Intelligent decision support system
MetadataShow full item record
In part 1 of this paper, factors that influence hazards and eco/toxicity in composite hazardous wastes were described. In part 2, a computer-aided decision support tool based on fuzzy set theory is proposed to support the classification of composite wastes. Given the chemical properties, thenature of microorganisms that may be present, the behaviour of chemicals in humans and ecosystems, and the quantities of wastes, the computeraided tool automatically classifies the waste as benign, partially hazardous, hazardous or highly hazardous. The functionality of the computer-aideddecision tool is demonstrated through nine worked examples and the results are discussed in detail.
