Abstract

Purpose The concept of sustainability and sustainable devel- ability assessment are the first part of the two-paper series. An opment has been widely incorporated in energy and industrial illustrative case has been studied by the proposed multi- systems. This paper is the second part of a two-paper series criteria decision-making method, and the sustainability of six dealing with multi-actor multi-criteria sustainability assess- alternative options for the production of a 1-t product was ment of alternative energy and industrial systems in life cycle investigated. The sustainability degree of these six alternative perspective under uncertainties. options can be determined by the proposed method.

An improved extension theory which can extension theory has been modified to deal with the uncertain- address interval decision-making matrix has been developed ty problems and the proposed method can rank the alternative for determining the sustainability degree of the energy and energy and industrial systems with the
