A symposium on the availability of raw materials from secondary sources - a key aspect of circular economy will be taking place on the 24th April 2018 at the Palais de Nations, Geneva, Switzerland.

The symposium reflects on the future availability of secondary raw materials and the need for a unifying global standard – the United Nations Framework Classification (UNFC), to manage anthropogenic resources in a circular economy, with special reference to valorizing wastes for the recovery of Critical Raw Materials .

 

The symposium aims to

(1) develop a global agenda of priority actions and strategies on the future availability of secondary raw materials to accelerate progress towards circular economy,

(2) facilitate greater collaboration across disciplines, sectors, initiatives and countries through the implementation of the UNFC for all types of Anthropogenic Resources (in the morning) and with a focus on Critical Raw Materials (in the afternoon),

(3) share the pan-European research coordination results of COST Action MINEA and provide inputs for the development and application of the UNFC to anthropogenic resources, and

(4) discuss the possibility of establishing a platform for identifying challenges in the supply of Critical Raw Materials and developing case studies based on UNFC methodology.
