Ng, W. Y.; et al. (2020): Ranking negative emissions technologies under uncertainty

Ng, W. Y.; Low, C. X.; Putra, Z. A.; Aviso, K. B.; Promentilla, M.A.B.; Tan, R. R. (2020): Ranking negative emissions technologies under uncertainty. In Heliyon 6 (12), e05730. DOI: 10.1016/j.heliyon.2020.e05730.

"Given that there are multiple available NETs that need to be evaluated based on multiple criteria, there is a need for a systematic method for ranking and prioritizing them. Furthermore, the uncertainty in estimating the techno-economic performance levels of NETs is a major challenge. In this work, an integrated model of fuzzy analytical hierarchy process (AHP) and interval-extended Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) is proposed to address the multiple criteria, together with data uncertainties."
