MetalStocks In Society - Scientific Synthesis

Economic development is deeply coupled with the use of metals, but the growing demand implies a permanent pressure on the resource base. The growing metal stocks in our society can serve as huge mines above ground. Recycling is a way to mitigate negative impacts on increasing metal demand and to assure the potentials of economic growth. In its first two metal reports, "Metal Stocks in Society: Scientific Synthesis" and "The Recycling Rates of Metals: A Status Report", UNEP's International Panel for Sustainable Resource Management addresses the issue of mines above ground.
