Location of a Semiobnoxious Facility: A Biobjective Approach

Emilio Carrizosa, Eduardo Conde, Dolores Romero Morales

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


In the location of a semiobnoxious facility one has to consider both transportation and environmental (or social) costs to be optimized. Such objectives are modeled as functions of the distances to a set of demand points, leading to a biobjective optimization problem.
Since the usual solution set is in general infinite and so of dubious interest to Decision Makers, we propose as solution a finite feasible set representing the best compromise solutions. Such a finite set is obtained, using the concept of α-dominance, by a standard Global Optimization technique.
