Abstract

Sustainable waste management systems necessarily include environmental, economic, social, institutional, legal and technical aspects. As a result of the incompleteness and multiple uncertainties occurring in sustainable waste management systems, we propose the use of fuzzy cognitive maps (FCM) to support the planning and decision making process. It is obvious that uncertainties involved with waste management represent vagueness rather than probability. Fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic are suitable to construct a formal description and a mathematically manageable model of systems and processes with such uncertainties. In the research described in this paper the FCM model of the Gyor RWMS is established and implemented in such a structure that its parameters and weights were flexibly variable. By observation of the model and its time dependent behaviour we determined under what conditions the long-term sustainability of a regional waste management system could be ensured. In this paper, the interpretation of the results obtained by the FCM model for the actual waste management system are presented.
