Building a Third-Party Recycling Platform for E-Waste Recycling through an Extended Producer Responsibility Framework
The Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) system has recently been implemented within E-waste recycling as a key environmental measure. The current insufficient measures and lack of standards in China limit the adoption of EPR. This paper proposes a third-party E-waste recyling system (EWRS) models through EPR. The hope is to simplify the process of returning E-waste from consumers to producers and to help developing a scientific recycling and standard management system. The proposed framework uses the e-commerce information platform to collect and analyze recycling data in real time, therefore optimizing the design of the supply chain.
