The goal of many supply chain optimization problems is to minimize the costs of the entire supply chain network. However, since environmental protection is one of the main concerns, the green supply chain network has been seriously considered as a solution to this concern in order to minimize its effects on nature. This article refers to the modeling and solution of a green supply chain network for the transportation of petroleum products in order to reduce the annual costs, considering the environmental effects. In this article, the cost elements of the supply chain such as the transportation costs of each petroleum product, operating costs, the cost of purchasing crude oil products and the fixed costs of building oil centers as well as the components of the environmental effects of the supply chain such as the amount of gas emissions and volatile organic particles produced by transportation options in the supply chain. considered green. Considering these two components (cost and environmental impact), we have proposed a multi-objective supply chain model. In this facility model, oil centers have limited capacity and at each level of the chain, there are several types of transportation options with different costs. To solve the problem, we have used two multi-objective particle swarm optimization algorithms and genetic multi-objective optimization algorithm with non-dominant sorting II with a priority-based decoding to encode the chromosome. Finally, we have used TOPSIS method to compare these two algorithms.
