Enhancing circularity in Africa’s mining sector

There are a vast number of circular economy opportunities across the value chain in the minerals and metals sector globally and in Africa. This session will explore these at both upstream and downstream levels, highlighting how circular economy principles can lead to a decrease in operational costs and enhanced efficiency through optimised resource use. For example, onshoring the processing and production of minerals for the green transition could reduce the global volume of minerals required, decarbonise global supply chains, and drive local manufacturing and economic activities.
