Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

This paper considers a closed–loop supply chain (CLSC) network design problem that accounts for the impact of carbon emission regulations. Three regulatory policy settings are considered; namely, (a) firms are subject to mandatory carbon caps on the amount of carbon they emit, (b) firms are taxed on the amount of emissions, and (c) firms can participate in a carbon cap and trade system. Traditional CLSC network design models are extended to account for the carbon emissions caused by transportation under different transportation modes. Model validations are demonstrated via a case study. Through detailed sensitivity analysis, we investigate how the ...
