A little more about LAYERS of material flows for E-tech elements...

LAYERS is a nine month proof-of-concept study funded under the NERC ‘Security of Supply of Mineral Resources’ programme. LAYERS uses material flow analysis (MFA) to produce a generic model of the entire supply chain for selected E-tech elements (e.g. Cobalt) from global extraction, processing, through to use, disposal, and management of strategically important mineral resources i.e. Electronic technologies elements.
