Opportunities and limits of metal recycling within a circular economy

Metallurgy is at the heart of developing a circular economy as metals all have strong intrinsic recycling potentials. Moving towards closed material-loops requires for the metallurgical industry to continue to refine its processing methods and adapt to the changing and ever complicating waste fractions.
However, circular economy is a popular expression currently, and Markus Reuter emphasize that actions on the metallurgical infrastructure are needed to make this buzzword more than just "hot air" as he expresses himself.
