IDENTIFYING OPTIMAL GROUNDWATER REMEDIATION STRATEGIES THROUGH A SIMULATION-BASED PROMETHEE-TOPSIS APPROACH: AN APPLICATION TO A NAPHTHALENE-CONTAMINATED SITE

Human and Ecological Risk Assessment: An International Journal [Published online 27 Mar 2019 prior to print]

Researchers aimed to develop a simulation-aided PROMETHEE-TOPSIS approach to select optimal groundwater remediation strategies. The combination of methods allows a user to evaluate and rank remediation alternatives, employing strong and weak point comparisons to facilitate a final selection. A case study is presented where the approach was used in the remedial alternative selection process for a naphthalene-contaminated site in Anhui, China. An analytic hierarchy process was used to weigh the importance of 4 attributes for 50 remedial processes.
