Investment decisions in control technology for environmental management are similar to those in other areas of public finance. These decisions, which may include the decision to construct a water or wastewater treatment system or an incinerator, depend on adequate financial support, which means not only avaialbility of money in sufficient quantity, but also at the time when needed. A mathematical model, incorporating borrowing and lending variables, has been structured to provide an efficient method of studying the problem. The model formulation assumes that investment decisions for control technology can be separated into a total operating and capital cost decision and an investment cost decision. These costs are minimized in 2 stages. The first stage uses a fixed-charge algorithm and the second stage, a linear programming algorithm. (Author)
