URBAN MINING® Association - Resources thought anew

Rohstoffe in der Stadt - Urban Mining

 

The URBAN MINING Association promotes the exploration and characterization of anthropogenic resources. These are all the resources, in contrast to the primary resources, which were or are being used by people. The majority of anthropogenic resources has been worked into settlements, infrastructure and other durable goods, which form the so-called anthropogenic stock; a smaller proportion rests in dumps and landfills.

Some raw materials are already involved in a permanent recycling cycle. However, the dependency on rare natural resources and efforts for a more sustainable use of natural resources still requires the search for new alternatives. Urban Mining needs a greater role in the formulation of policy responses. The more the Federal Republic invests in the exploration of urban mining and increasing the efficiency of resource use, the more the German economy can be immunized to the pressure of global demand, while new methods of urban mining with rising commodity prices can additionally create attractive export products. Especially in emerging markets the demand for such solutions in the medium term is expected to increase dramatically.
