|dc.description.abstract||With the rapid development of technology, our lives become more and more convenient by the universal of transportation. The vehicles come on the top when we want to move the long distance. Therefore, the automobile industry is getting prosperous recently. At the same time, tires, one of the most critical components of vehicle, are very important. No matter we are talking about performance, safety or durability, tires are one of the most significant factors. From time to time, we see car accidents happening because tires are worn out or without proper pressure. The importance of tires should be concerned for those drivers. As long as we switch those tires, how to deal with the Waste tires is the essential issue. In early years, Taiwan deal with the discarded waste tires from replacing down by discarding and piling up before. As a result, it cause a lot of environmental problems such as Dengue and other diseases.
Nowadays, we start to care about sustainable development, environmental protection and recycling. We process many used items and do serious research about it, including waste tires. Is it possible to generate further value with used tires? Can we enhance the value of product life cycle? What is more, we could also think about the Reverse Logistics and Green Supply Chain’s problem in waste tires recycling.
This research studies Reverse Logistics Network Problem of Taiwan’s Waste Tires Recy-cling. Considering the quantity of recycling, the way of processing, time of processing, subsi-dization from the government, demand of re-generated product and the price of re-generated product, this study uses a mixed integer programming model to solve the problem. Further-more, this research uses CPLEX Studio to find the optimal solution about how do we maxim-ize the profit of Tire Processing Factory.||en_US|
