In this paper, the main focus is on an optimization approach to determine the supply of a variety of products to recover (at the end of their lives) in order to fulfill the demand of an assortment of components, and have an environmentally benign policy of minimizing waste generation. When the problem is solved, it gives the number of each product type to be disassembled in order to fulfill the demand of components needed at minimal cost. From the supply chain perspective, this would result in minimal inventory requirements at both ends of the reverse logistics chain, viz., at the end-of-life (EOL) products end and at the disassembled components end.
