Workshop: Resources That Don’t Cost the Earth, 1-2 December 2011, Berlin

by Anne Zavala

Germany, the UK and other European countries are almost exclusively dependent on the import of strategically important metals and rare earths for their technology sectors.

This workshop will offer a platform to explore emerging technologies that help reduce reliance on scarce materials imports. At the same time, it will offer the opportunity to exchange best practises on:

  • Securing access to rare resources – extraction and partnerships;
  • Resource efficiency and sustainable alternatives (substitutes);
  • Cost efficient and innovative recycling;
  • Reducing waste in production and design – sustainability strategies.
