Recycling Sheets 2018

Wednesday, 17 October, 2018

The IMA-Europe Recycling Sheets gather publicly available data on the recycling rate on the main applications and products in which industrial minerals are used as primary raw materials. For each mineral we represent the consumption by market and the recycling rates of their specific application, showing that, thanks to this recycling, it  si up to 50% of the minerals that find subsequent uses in our aspirational circular economy. On the other side, this means that there is still a need for more than 50% primary industrial minerals to be produced to meet the growing market’s demand. 

The new Recycling Sheets are available for download here.
