Reverse logistics in effective recovery of products from waste materials
Technical solutions for the recovery of products from waste materials become more and more available. To have these new technologies implemented in a real world, a feasibility study is indispensable. For this purpose, it is often imperative to adopt the viewpoint of an individual firm and ask whether it would be wise to engage in product recovery activities or not. Aspects of economics and logistics are of prime importance here. Some important frameworks, models, and insights that have been developed in recent years are described in this paper.
