Abstract

Electrical and electronic equipment are popular in recent world. In Japan, although the ratio of the recycled material of the collected amount of product is high, the collected rate is not sufficient. The rest of the e-wastes are often exported. This outflow causes some serious problems to environment. The paper first assumes models of global e-waste flows among Asian countries. Then, the paper carries out analyses of the environmental impact and the cost-profit. The paper tries to propose proper strategies to globalize the inverse supply chain which can be helpful in reducing environmental impact and enhancing business activities.
