Densely built-up urban areas are vast “repositories” or “banks” of raw materials. Urban mining is a concept for the systematic inventory mapping and reclamation of the (secondary) raw materials in buildings, infrastructure, and products that would otherwise waste. It also includes research and development of new technologies for increasingly efficient recovery of these raw materials and smart new uses.
