Session Overview
TU-102: Raw materials supply chains in the light of the circular economy
Tuesday, 05/Sep/2017:
10:30am - 12:00pm

Session Chair: Jo Dewulf, Ghent University, Belgium
Session Chair: Johannes Drielsma, EUROMINES, Belgium
Location: Salle de conférences 1
European Convention Center - Ground Floor - "Salle de conférences 1"

Session Abstract

Global raw material supply chains are facing major challenges related to secure and sustainable supply of raw materials, resource efficiency in mineral and metallurgical process, value chain optimisation, recycling for end-of-life products, etc. Within the broad context of the circular economy, threats such as supply disruptions and related criticality can occur, in the absence of a proper Life Cycle Management (LCM). This session is a joint initiative from research institutes coordinated in the Sustainability Support and Information Centre of the EIT Raw Materials (SSIC), the European Commission JRC, mining sector federations and the European Automobile Manufacturers' Association (ACEA) as an important end-user of the supply chain of raw materials. Abstracts for oral presentations and posters are welcome aiming at innovation and emerging technologies, new business models looking at complete end-to-end value chains of raw materials, substitution, recycling and circular economy in general.
