Reverse Supply Chain of Ship Recycling: Marketization and Operationalization

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


Ship recycling refers to the process of tearing down vessels with the goal of reusing the components. This paper treats ship recycling as an economic activity, contextualizing it in accounting and operations management debates about the economization of markets and the assessment of value. Through qualitative research, a map of reverse supply chain of ship recycling and key activities of the stakeholders are portrayed. Preliminary findings show that there are conflicts of interest in the valuation of ship recycling by the stakeholders. Moreover, standards and regulations have not been able to fully embrace the social aspects in the developing countries.
