Press Release - Imports, circular economy, mines: Where the metals come from for future technologies?

The demand for raw materials is increasing worldwide. The entry into electromobility and the expansion of wind farms, solar plants, storage facilities and intelligent grids to implement the energy revolution are currently making large quantities of metals necessary in Germany as well. Are the worldwide resources sufficient to cover the diverse requirements? On 14 May, the acatech participants discussed this issue on Tuesday, which this time took place in Leipzig - and for the first time outside Bavaria.

GERRI - Roundtable discussion

Roundtable discussion: Can Europe afford to lose its metals?
Towards an effective Circular Economy for raw materials.

Is the European recycling infrastructure sufficient for providing metals and other raw materials in support
of the business models of a Circular Economy (CE)? How can we secure the raw materials supply
for production in Europe and enhance resource efficiency when dealing with scarce resources? Due to
the pivotal role of metals a primary focus has to be laid on this sector.
