Impact of policies and technology funding on aggregate demand for raw materials
In the DeteRess project, the opportunities and limitations of a technology-oriented dematerialisation policy were described and an action corridor was defined that describes the potential for reducing and increasing the productivity of raw material use in Germany.
The focus here was on the technical drivers and structural demands, which are essentially not influenced by individual consumer behavior. The scenarios developed can support the policy on concrete resource efficiency goals and highlight the impact of policies and technology funding on aggregate demand for raw materials.
