Abstract

For a paper manufacturer to remain competitive, they must be able to manufacture at a low production cost. One such approach to reduce manufacturing cost could be the adoption of recycling and remanufacturing of waste paper. This article reviews the extent of how waste paper can be reused through recycling and remanufacturing. In addition, a cost modelling approach in recycling and remanufacturing has been developed to predict cost fluctuations under different manufacturing constraints, so that paper manufacturers can utilize this approach to predict potential costs when reusing waste paper as their source of raw material and therefore minimizes generation of waste.
