Abstract

With huge amount of electronic products becoming obsolete each year, more and more Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and recycling companies engage in economic pursuits from the End-of-Life (EOL) management of the electronic wastes, while the increasing environmental concerns from society and governmental agencies ask for proper considerations of environmental strategies during the EOL management process to reduce the environmental impact of these electronic products. This paper proposes an economic analysis model with environmental strategies embedded for the management of EOL electronic products, in which both economic and environmental factors are well considered. The purpose of this model is to help OEMs and recyclers in economic and environmental analysis of their EOL management processes.
