Future Availability of Secondary Raw Materials (FutuRaM)

Raw materials are crucial for the operation of industries worldwide and necessary for the creation of most products. However, raw materials are finite, which affects their demand, supply and cost. Since little is known about their recoverability and availability, a green push in this sector is difficult. The EU-funded FutuRaM project aims to change this by introducing a strategy, reporting structure and guidelines for raw materials’ use, which will massively improve our data and knowledge on those materials. The findings will assist in assessing waste stream recoverability and secondary and critical raw materials recycling, which are significant for a green future.
