Abstract The paper proposes an extension of the transhipment models of Nikolakopoulos et al. (2012) in targeting the minimum waste treatment flowrate for single and multiple contaminant systems. Problems are modelled as inverse residual cascades with two concentration shifting operations for transforming the models into virtual resource targeting formulations and cope effectively with the concentrations of the multiple contaminants. The methodology has been successfully tested in problems of systems with various contaminant and treatment process features. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
