Materials Case Study 1: Critical Metals and Mobile Devices Annexes

Associated Resources

Abstract:In addition to aluminium, wood fibres and plastics, critical metals have been identified as priority materials for which sustainable management would bring significant environmental, social and economic benefits. The objective of this case study on critical metals is to analyse the environmental impacts of critical metals throughout their lifecycle and identify the best practices for their sustainable management. This document includes all annexes to the critical metals case study that will be presented at the OECD Global Forum on Sustainable Materials Management to be held in Belgium from 25 to 27 October 2010 and, together with the other three case studies, will serve as a basis for the discussions of Session 1 on Good SMM Practices in Priority Materials.
