We optimize the design of a closed-loop supply chain network that encompasses flows in both forward and reverse directions and is subject to uncertainty in demands for both new and returned products. The model also accommodates a carbon tax with tax rate uncertainty. The proposed model is a three-stage hybrid robust/stochastic program that combines probabilistic scenarios for the demands and return quantities with uncertainty sets for the carbon tax rates. The first stage decisions are facility investments, the second stage concerns the plan for distributing new and collecting returned products after realization of demands and returns, and the numbers ...
