Mastering the art of restoration and reconstruction products from the world of the waste stream is a major step towards sustainable development. Drivers reprocessing are not only laws, but also the ongoing economic life of the equipment and strategic opportunities. Central themes in the reverse logistics of recycling include transportation and storage, handling and packing, sorting and disassembly. Understanding disassembly includes features for checking and sorting, to know what to disassemble, feedback to designers, inventory control and scheduling. Finally, there is the question of the assembly. If recycled products are completed, they must be introduced into consumer channels and logistics forward again. Also of importance is the development of market awareness and appreciation, here questions of the target markets, pricing and guarantees must be addressed. Successful remanufacturing requires the development of skills that are not currently a large part of the manufacturing process portfolio. Development of skills in reverse logistics will bring us closer to the ideal of sustainable development.
