Application of Analytical Hierarchy Process in Evaluation of Best Sewage Treatment Plant

Kshitij Upadhyay [3]

Abstract: This paper presents the application of AHP in environment engineering. In many environment engineering applications the final decision is based on the evaluation of a number of alternatives in terms of a number of criteria. This problem may become a very difficult one when the criteria are expressed in different units or the pertinent data are difficult to be quantified. The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is an effective approach in dealing with this kind of decision problems. This may be a difficult task and the Analytic Hierarchy Process seems to provide an effective way for properly quantifying the pertinent data. This paper examines some of the practical and computational issues involved when the AHP method used in environment engineering applications. Various economic, environment and technical data are thorough analysed in this paper to compare sewage treatment plant of Kanpur and Lucknow for gainful research purpose with the help of AHP.
