Designing a supply network for sustainable conversion of agriplastics into higher value products

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This study addresses the problem of agricultural plastic waste being a major stream of waste landfilled. The developed model is designed to optimise the supply chain of converting plastic waste into energy through pyrolysis and applied in a case study of the Scottish agricultural sector to showcase its potential in assessing the feasibility and financial viability in addition to the positive environmental impact of agricultural plastics supply networks. Based on the results this study discusses the benefits of using such a model for decision making purposes, the potential for waste reduction and the implications for the farmer operations
