AbstractAfter years of rapid economic development, China is calling for development of a circular economy and resource recycling, to solve both the resource shortage problem and the environmental problems. Based on the analysis of the current status and the challenges of the electronic waste (e-waste) recycling in China, this paper seeks to design a financially feasible and environmentally safe e-waste recycling system. An integrated assessment model is proposed, in which the environmental, social and economic impact of recycling scenarios can be assessed simultaneously. The economic impact can be derived from an optimization model for the reverse logistics network.
