Environmental management: A management theory and modeling approach

Kevin W Linderman

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The disposal of hazardous wastes creates major economic and environmental problems for both developed and developing nations. One productive use of hazardous wastes is to blend them into fuel, which mitigates damage to the environment by recycling waste into fuel and reducing fossil-fuel consumption. This research uses management theory to inform and develop an optimization model that blends hazardous waste into fuel. The theory of swift and even flow provides a basis for the model formulation. A real-world case study at a cement kiln illustrates the effectiveness of this approach, where the implementation followed principles of sociotechnical theory.
