This paper proposes a hybrid approach for solving themulti-objective model related to theminimisation of sugar cane waste collection costs and/or the maximisation of produced energy by this waste, with the aid of strategies for solving multi-objective problems, which transform the problem into a set of single-objective problems. This approach combines the predictor-corrector primal-dual interior-point and branch-and-bound methods in order to solve these single-objective problems. The model consists in identifying the sugar cane varieties with the lowest waste collection costs, while simultaneously it aims to obtain the greatest amount of produced energy by this waste. The hybrid methods are implemented in C++ programming language, and tests are performed to determine the efficient solutions in Pareto optimal sense of the multi-objective model and compare the performance of the hybrid method using the integrality test and without considering it. The mathematical results confirm that the proposed hybrid method for solving the aforementioned models presents good computational performance and reliable solutions. (AU)
