Raw materials for emerging technologies 2016
(Review and update of study 2009)
The German Mineral Resources Agency (DERA) has commissioned the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI to update its study of the raw material demand for emerging technologies that was first published in 2009. The objective is to obtain a sound and up-to-date knowledge basis about possible demand developments concerning raw materials for resource-intensive and resource-sensitive key and emerging technologies. The raw material requirements in 2035 for selected emerging technologies are to be determined at the same time.
