Abstract: In this paper, a new method for ELV dismantling selection is proposed which has purpose to determine the sequence of dismantling of ELV which arrive to dismantling center. Its solution is of the most importance for ELV waste management problem, as it influences the choice and efficiency of ELV waste management strategies in dismantling centers. It is realistically posed that the choice of locations depends on multiple, rather conflicting criteria. The criteria values can be either crisp or uncertain. The main contribution of this paper is the development of methodology for determining the dismantling order of coming ELV and/ or ELV which are already in the dismantling centers. The uncertain criteria values are described by linguistic expressions modeled by triangular fuzzy numbers. The extension of the fuzzy Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) is applied to rank the ELV which are in the dismantling center.

Keywords: End-of-Life Vehicles selection, dismantling centers, uncertainties, multi-criteria approaches, fuzzy sets
