Air pollution and industrial plant location: A multi-objective optimization approach

Coauthors: Nestor Garcia-Chan, Aurea Martinez, Miguel E. Vazquez-Mendez


In this talk we deal with the problem of choosing the optimal location for a new industrial plant, considering the framework of numerical simulation and multi-objective optimal control of partial differential equations (PDE). We take into account both ecological and economic objectives, and we look not only for the optimal location of the plant but also for the optimal management of its emissions to atmosphere. With these purposes in mind, we propose a mathematical model (a system of parabolic PDE) to simulate air pollution and, based on this model, we formulate the problem in the framework of multi-objective optimal control. This problem is studied here from a cooperative point of view, looking for Pareto-optimal solutions. A numerical algorithm (via a characteristics-Galerkin discretization of the adjoint model) is proposed, and preliminary numerical results for a hypothetical situation in the region of Galicia (NW Spain) are also presented.
