Research project on the availability and recoverability of secondary raw materials in the EU.

FutuRaM

This Horizon Europe and UK Research and Innovation funded research project, started in June 2022, with the aim to develop the Secondary Raw Materials knowledge based on the availability and recoverability of secondary raw materials (SRMs) within the European Union (EU) and the UK, with a specific focus on critical raw materials (CRMs).

FutuRaM will establish a methodology, reporting structure and guidance to improve the raw materials knowledge up to 2050. It will integrate SRMs and CRMs data to model their current stocks and flows, and consider economic, technological, geographical, regulatory and social environmental factors.

Electrical and electronic equipment and batteries are two of six waste streams in total that the project will focus on. FutuRaM is being delivered by a consortium of 28 partners from 11 countries across Europe. REPIC is part of this select group, sharing industry information and insights from the UK with leading universities and research institutes and relevant industry associations to create a tool that enables better understanding of the viability of raw materials to enable the commercial exploitation of SRMs and CRMs by manufacturers, recyclers and investors and also support policy makers and governmental authorities.

Experts from the project took to the main stage at The World Resources Forum 23 to discuss how one of the largest waste streams in Europe could turn into a sought-after sources of #criticalrawmaterials.
