Thema_Titel-3_Global-metal

Global trade flows within the circular economy can play an important role in increasing resource efficiency. However, these flows do not always ensure that products and materials remain in the economy as long as possible, running the risk of ending up with low-resource efficiency and sham recycling. A debate regarding the optimization of these flows, in order to stimulate closing the loops in a qualitative way, is imminent.

Global session: Different perspectives on global metal flows in the circular economy

The global trade of metals can play an important role in increasing resource efficiency. However, resulting global material flows not always ensure that products and materials remain in the economy as long as possible, running the risk of ending up with low-resource efficiency and sham recycling. A debate regarding the optimization of these flows, in order to stimulate closed loops in a qualitative way and towards enabling a circular economy, is urgent.
