Fluvial transportation as alternative solution for optimizing restaurant waste management

Paul-Eric Dossou

The population density in European cities and the increasing of car flows are the main reason of bottlenecks,
congestions in cities and disaggregation of quality of life in these cities. Road transportation is not the best way
for respecting environmental improvements. Cities like Paris, take political decisions for decreasing this high
level of road transportation and changing gasoil consumption. Economic advantages for alternative to road
transportation have to be shown to companies in order to accelerate their switching decision. This paper focuses
on the optimization of restaurant waste management by using fluvial transportation. The idea is to adapt complex
systems modeling to this case and show how this activity sector companies could be competitive. Formalisms
and tools of GRAI methodology has been used for elaborating appropriated concepts to this sector optimization.
An example integrating real data (with a simulation by using Anylogic tool) will be presented for illustrating
theoretical propositions.
