Emissions Taxes to Drive Remanufacturing to Deliver Environmental and Social Benefits
This paper examines how emissions taxes can be used to induce remanufacturing and discusses its resulting economic, environmental and social impacts. By relating important characteristics of remanufacturing (e.g., collection rate, emissions intensity) to production costs, extent of environmental damage and consumer market, we analyze the profit-maximizing policy for a monopolistic firm and the social-welfare maximizing policy for the regulator. We also identify conditions when remanufacturing can be a win-win and a win-win-win strategy under emissions taxes.
