Part of the Springer Proceedings in Business and Economics book series (SPBE)


This project proposes routes that minimize recovery costs for multilayer containers, which connects high waste generation points with facilitated methods of waste separation to increase its recycling rate. The objective is to reduce the accumulation of 100-year-degrading-time material by facilitating its separation and supplying recycling companies with their raw material.
