Last week we were pleased to take part in an extremely informative webinar organised by colleagues at UNECE and DG GROW that gave a detailed introduction to the UN Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) for Secondary Raw Materials, which is a focus of FutuRaM. Ronald Arvidsson (Geological Survey of Sweden), Daniel Monfort (French Geological Survey, BRGM) and Soraya Heuss-Aßbichler (Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich) represented the project with Andrea Winterstetter (KRAIBURG TPE) and Rudolf Suppes (Holcim) also sharing their experiences of UNFC applied to secondary raw materials.

The audience contained government departments, government agencies, geological surveys, secondary raw materials industry and others; all these people will play a key role in shaping the UNFC methodology through consultation with the FutuRaM project and will be critical in its future take up and implementation.

The project relies on a wide stakeholder community to provide important input on the many aspects of the project. We encourage you to sign up to our network to take part in the project and shape the outcomes as well as to receive regular project updates. It’s a quick and simple process that you can find out more about here.
