Come join us for an update on Supply Chain Sustainability in Academic Research by Dr Subodha Kumar and fellow Temple faculty members. 

  1. Efficient Detection of Environmental Violators: A Big Data Approach: The detection of environmental violators is critical to the long-term adoption of sustainability in supply chain management. In this research, we use waste gas data from the world's largest Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS) to build prediction models for the identification of environmental violators.
  2. Trade-In or Sell in My P2P Marketplace: A Game-Theoretic Analysis of Profit and Environmental Impact: Firms are increasingly adopting resale based business models generally through either a (i) trade-in with a resale program, where a firm offers a trade-in discount on a new product and resells the traded-in products, or a (ii) P2P resale marketplace, where the firm facilitates a resale marketplace in which customers can buy and sell used products to each other. We investigate the profitability and environmental impacts of the trade-in and P2P resale marketplace models.
  1. Is Your Retailer a Friend or Foe: When Should the Manufacturer Allow Its Retailer to Refurbish?: Refurbishing of used products is increasingly being recognized as a value recovery strategy in sustainable operations and closed-loop supply chain. In this research, we examine whether a manufacturer should refurbish used products himself or allow his retailer to refurbish them.
  2. Achieving Equitable Food Security: How Can Food Bank Mobile Pantries Fill this Humanitarian Need: Our research focuses on how mobile pantry programs, additional food bank storage capacity, and increased partner agency capacity can be utilized to address this supply and distribution capacity variability.
