Metals are inorganic chemicals used across a range of European industrial ecosystems, including mobility, construction, electronics, digital, health, and renewable energy. Their demand is projected to increase significantly in line with society’s transition away from fossil fuels towards climate-neutrality, with recycling as a key route to improving Europe’s resilience.1 The industry maintains that Europe’s priorities on REACH should be to implement robust and efficient measures for controlling harmful exposure from metals across their lifecycle, while promoting closing materials circles and ensuring safe recycling of metals and inorganics. In turn industry has made significant investments to make REACH a success as a cornerstone of the EU’s chemicals management and the most comprehensive chemicals legislation in the world.
