Part of the Applied Optimization book series (APOP, volume 34)


Management in regional economic-environmental systems puts forward a broad spectrum of important problems that require scientific substantiation. These problems include:
  • determining the most dangerous media (water, air, soil) and types of pollutants and modelling of their propagation;

  • modelling of a joint (combined) effect of all emissions on the pollutant concentration in ecologically significant zones of the region while taking into account the pollutant transport, diffusion, sedimentation and other factors;

  • determining the limiting permissible concentrations (LPC) of the pollutants in the region and their limiting permissible emissions (LPE) for each plant (factory) of the region;

  • modernizing of ecologically dangerous manufacturing processes compared to their liquidation and determining optimal plans and rational timetable for reconstruction the manufacturing process;

  • the choice of specific products and production technologies, the definition of the rational schemes of rebuilding production structure.

  • forecasting global environmental consequences of an economic policy in the region.
