GAVIRIA-CUEVAS, Jenny F.; SOTO-PAZ, Jonathan; MANYOMA-VELASQUEZ, Pablo C.  and  TORRES-LOZADA, Patricia. Trends in Research on the Supply Chain Management of Municipal Solid Waste. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2019, vol.30, n.4, pp.147-154. ISSN 0718-0764.

The purpose of this paper is to identify trends in research at a global level in the supply chain of the Integral and Sustainable Management of Solid Waste (ISMSW), in terms of management and treatment of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). For this purpose, an exhaustive search of articles in specialized databases was carried out, information that was processed using the free software applications Bibexcel, Pajek, VoSviewer © and Tagxedo for bibliometric analysis. As a result, it was found a predominant use of technologies to treat MSW for the purpose of energy recovery. On the other hand, the ISMSW analyzed as a supply chain, involves SWM treatment decisions, actors involved and environmental, technical, social and economic aspects. Finally, four major research gaps or opportunities were identified that can be addressed with engineering tools to support decisions that involve resources, money and energy flows.

Keywords : solid waste management; solid waste treatment; sustainability; supply chain.
