Technical solutions for the recovery of products from waste materials become more and more available. To have these new technologies implemented in a real world, a feasibility study is indispensable. For this purpose, it is often imperative to adopt the viewpoint of an individual firm and ask whether it would be wise to engage in product recovery activities or not.
