LTG (Li Tong Group), one of the largest Reverse Supply Chain Management (RSCM) services providers for technology and telecom in the Asia-Pacific region, will be presenting at the Hi-Tech & Electronic Supply Chain Summit in San Francisco tomorrow [Oct 28, 2014]. The presentation will focus on how technology companies can leverage RSCM solutions to reduce materials management costs by millions of dollars and make design-for-recycle practices a positive contributor to profit margins.
Linda Li, executive director and corporate vice president at LTG, will share insights from the company's 14 years of experience creating integrated RSCM solutions for manufacturers, OEM's and other customers in more than 20 countries that reduce landfill use rates by more than 95 percent, as well as make global supply chain networks more efficient. LTG maintains extensive global relationships with manufacturers, suppliers, end-users and participants in secondary markets, and operates 15 wholly-owned facilities globally, providing post-industrial and post-consumer recovery, materials and component optimization design-for-recycle programs, reporting and compliance strategies, among other services.
Electronic recycling, just one element of RSCM, is expected to grow from $9.8 billion in 2012 to $41.4 billion by 2019 as the amount of electronic materials added to the post-use segment of the supply chain grows to 141 million tons.
Li will provide insight into the key considerations OEM's should be evaluating for electronic remanufacturing operations. Remanufacturing, together with reuse and recovery — also known as the "3R's" — refers to the process of collecting, inspecting, disassembling and refurbishing used products and components to their original or improved performance specifications, and enabling them for reapplication and remarketing.
