This chapter will provide the reader with a process description of remanufacturing, as well as an overview of the literature which is relevant in this area of research. Understanding the process and its costs leads to a better understanding of the planning situation faced by firms and the trade-offs involved. The literature review will structure the relevant literature, while relegating more detailed discussion of fine differences to the appropriate sections later.
