A Fuzzy Logic Programming Environment for Recycling Facility Selection

Esra Çakir, H. Ulukan

Abstract

Recycling of wastes is a crucial subject for a sustainable environment. One of the main problem in this area is the appropriate location of the collection centers and recycling facilities. These facilities can be paired according to the criteria such as: distance, cost, type of waste. In this paper, fuzzy linguistics Prolog is used to find importance weights of selection criteria and to match facilities for decision making process. Bousi~Prolog is a fuzzy Prolog that enables working with both fuzzy linguistic and linguistic tools to guide the Prolog systems towards computing with paradigm phrases that can be very helpful to the linguistic resources.
