Critical raw materials (CRMs) are key to Europe’s economy as technological progress and quality of life rely on them. This session will present policy measures as well as different possible research approaches (like substitutions, increased of efficiency of fuels and recycling, among others). Focus will also be put on how these approaches consider the social, economic and environmental trade-offs of products along their life cycles and how such concepts contribute to improving the so-called recyclable-by-design model.
