The ProSUM Project team is working to create an inventory of secondary raw materials, particularly critical raw materials, arising in WEEE, end-of-life vehicles, waste batteries and mining wastes. Join other people in our Information Network to share expertise and intelligence and help grow the EU materials knowledge base.

At the event see our new harmonised system and how we take available data from many sources to create a central source of data linked with minerals data, our EU – Urban Mine Knowledge Data Platform. Hear from people working in manufacturing and recycling about their data needs and what they hope to get from ProSUM. Learn about the stocks and flows in the EU Urban Mine. Talk to the experts in break-out groups covering:

  • Developing a common database for mining wastes – useful for both economic and environmental evaluation of mining waste deposits
  • The selection of appropriate sampling, sample preparation and chemical analysis methods, crucial for providing reliable CRM composition data, especially for complex composite materials
  • Back-casting and forecasting trends for CRM use in products
  • How to present user friendly data and maps

Join us to learn about our results in the first half of the project and to help us shape the ProSUM services to meet your future needs.  Expand your networks and contacts!
