Demand for minerals and metals is growing. Global supply chains are becoming increasingly complex encompassing extraction, international trade, different processing steps, use in different products as well as reuse and recycling. The project MinFuture aims at identifying information gaps within global supply chains of minerals and metals and providing suggestions to fill those gaps.
