Abstract

This paper examines the eco-efficiency of different forward/reverse logistics network integration models in manufacturing/remanufacturing closed-loop supply chain under low-carbon restriction. A multi-objective mixed linger programming is established to optimize the site selection and flow allocation. In the objective function, three minimum targets are set: economic cost, energy consumption and waste generation. We compare the cost and environment efficiency of independent design and integrated design as well as sequential integration and simultaneous integration respectively, and find the optimal network integration option based on eco-efficiency to meet the requirements from low-carbon economy.
