    BEACON EVENT: Circular & critical raw materials. New opportunities for manufacturing industries

    Organized by: Edizioni Ambiente, Rivista Materia Rinnovabile, ENEA, Ecomondo Technical-Scientific Committee

    Big News in the world of raw materials supplying the industrial production: material economics are changing, and in a short time the relationship between resources and the natural capital may change as well. The key element of these changes lies in new ´renewable materials´ that are appearing in the market. They are, on one side, biomaterials .  among which bioplastics are becoming increasingly important . and on the other hand new materials coming from ´urban mines´ and ´industrial mines´, that´s to say what we called ´waste´ till yesterday and that, under certain conditions, can become new raw materials for the future.Moreover, the main manufacturing countries throughout the world, including EU, pay outstanding attention to the mitigation of possible supply shortage of raw materials.(EU, USA, Japan arranged a list of critical raw materials and devote big efforts on competitive recycling of end-of-life products, research for new materials designed to replace the critical ones).In this context, how should the industrial supply chains be organized to ensure quality and continuity to the new matter flows? The event will focus on problems related to different models of industrial organization, technological innovation, critical materials and best practices.
