Abstract

Waste from Electric and Electronic Equipments (WEEE) is one of the fastest growing waste streams. However, vast amounts of valuable materials are lost in different phases of reverse supply chain. The aim of this paper is to study how to make a reverse supply chain for WEEE more effective. The paper uses an energy-material recovery concept as a technological frame to study the different factors that influence the transformation. The results include analyses of external factors potentially re-shaping the reverse supply chains and the possible reverse supply chain implications of the transformation.
