Series: Earth Science Week

This third webinar of Earth Science Week 2022 webinar series explores the circular economy of raw materials, including production, use, reuse, recycling, and waste streams. The speakers discuss the roles of different stakeholders within this lifecycle and explore ways to re-capture raw materials through the different stages within the circular economy, such as is done with urban mining. The speakers also provide a discussion about the differences in designing approaches to raw materials development from the perspective of a producer vs. a provider.

Our speakers are: 

  • Dr. Federico Magalini, Director Sustainability Services UK and Italy, dss+  
  • Dr. Luis Tercero Espinoza, Coordinator of Business Unit Raw Materials, Fraunhofer  
  • Dr. Ola Isaksson, Professor in Systems Engineering and Engineering Design, Department of Industrial and Materials Science, Chalmers University of Technology
