Call for Presentation

The CoSiM Conference 2023 invites presentations on Circular Economy & Recycling of critical Raw Materials. Critical raw materials are essential for many industries including electronics, automotive, and renewable energy. This lead to massive amounts of waste worldwide. The current recycling of electronic waste rate is rather low and not sustainable. This can lead to resource depletion, environmental degradation, and economic losses. In many places, raw material are recycled in inhuman ways and inefficient procedures.

The recycling of critical raw material is a promising alternative to keep resources within the circular economy. Many new approaches are being developed but not implemented yet. Critical raw materials are confronted with a growing global demand, driven by the decarbonization of economies. For instance, demand of the EU for rare earth metals is expected to increase six-fold by 2030 and seven-fold by 2050. Therefore, the EU implemented the Critical Raw Material Act in 2023. Please see

In this years CoSiM Conference we would like to discuss with you all kind of models for the circular economy for critical raw materials. Please also see the fact sheet by the EU

Recycling of all kind of waste
