Special Session on Reverse Logistics and Supply Chain in Collaborative Environments

Description and Objectives

The Reverse Logistics from electroeletronic waste is a relevant operational strategy to promote an environmental cooperation in the Supply Chain between the manufacturing and recycling companies. In reason of governmental laws, the electroeletronic manufacturing companies has been motivated to implement the waste management. As consequence the reverse logistics has been adopted to improve their operations focusing on environmental responsibility: pollutants emissions reducing. On this context, the organizational practices and academic environment need to work in team to develop the collective intelligence from networking to meet the governmental rules (regulatory instruments) and promote the environmental education. Furthermore could be possible the development of appropriate software exclusive to reverse logistics. Therefore we invite all peers to present researches about Reverse Logistics, and Collaborative Environmental from Supply Chain, specially, giving priority to solid waste management from electroeletronic products, mainly promoting a scientific discussion with practical results.

Authors are invited to submit full research papers or posters on topics that might be interesting for (but no restricted to):

  • Regulatory Instruments about Electroeletronic Reverse Logistics.
  • Supply chain in collaborative environments
  • Economic and Environmental Advantages in reason of Reverse Logistics strategies of electroeletronic industries.
  • Recycling and reuse practices of electroeletronic industries.
  • Software Development focusing on Reverse Logistics Operations;
