Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is both valuable and harmful since it contains a large number of profitable and hazardous materials and elements at the same time. At component level, many parts of the discarded equipment are still functional and recoverable. Thus it is necessary to develop a distributed and intelligent system to support WEEE recovery and recycling. In recent years, the Cloud concept has gained increasing popularity since it provides a service-oriented architecture that integrates various resources over the network. Cloud Manufacturing systems are proposed world-wide to support operational manufacturing processes. In this research, Cloud Manufacturing is further extended to the WEEE recovery and recycling context. A Cloud-based WEEE Recovery system is developed to provide modularized recovery services on the Cloud. A data management system is developed as well, which maintains the knowledge throughout the product lifecycle. A product tracking mechanism is also proposed with the help of the Quick Respond code method.
