Urban Mining - The City as an Everlasting Source of Raw Materials

Urban Mining - Die Stadt als ewige Rohstoffquelle

While the rubbish mountain is growing, raw materials are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive all over the world. For decades, natural resources have been shipped to the industrialised countries and used among other things in tower blocks, mobile phones and cars. Thus, cities contain enormous amounts of raw materials. Researchers and companies are now starting to prospect for urban mines. Precious metals and minerals are to be extracted there. So far, they are stuck in the walls of condemned buildings, long forgotten landfills and disused everyday electronic devices. Those huge and growing urban mines must be explored at great cost and put to use systematically in order to ensure reliable long-term access to raw materials in resource-poor countries.
