This book analyzes competitive behavior in remanufacturing, examining two competitive frameworks in two different essays. The first essay examines the issue of take-back laws within a manufacturer / remanufacturer competitive framework, assessing the impact of alternative implementations of take-back laws. In the second essay, we examine the competitive framework with no take-back law, with the remanufacturer proactively collecting returns from the end-consumer market. For both essays, we develop a general two-period model to investigate a range of questions that may be of interest to policy-makers in government and managers in industry. We find evidence that sometimes industry is better off with take-back laws than without, and that in some settings, a manufacturer with control over returns can be good for industry profits and for the environment. In other settings, manufacturer control should be limited by government. In both essays we find that a conflict of interest may exist between the manufacturer, remanufacturer and policy maker. Hence it is important for industry, government and academics to build effective mechanisms to bridge this gap.
