Eunomia Chairman Dr Dominic Hogg will be attending a workshop in Brussels on Monday 19th May to discuss the development of a full Material System Analysis for 22 groups of materials (21 critical raw materials and aggregates) used in the EU-28 economy. Dominic is one of 15 experts from across Europe invited to attend by the European Commission’s DG Enterprise and Industry, and will be bringing to bear his expertise in mass flow analysis.

The aim of DG Enterprise’s project is to produce a comprehensive data inventory of the material flows in industry and society, which is crucial for providing evidence and informing discussions and decision making on the supply of raw materials. Key issues will be the supply, use and recycling of these materials.
