The mining sector has been and still is represented by linear rather than circular activities through its supply of resources to society. There is, however, a stronger drive towards ideals that are aligned with circular economy thinking within the industry. Such examples include optimising recovery and reuse of large-scale waste streams to generate by-products, greater levels of innovation to improve productivity, and smarter approaches that have broader stakeholder appeal and acceptance. This animated film will succinctly articulate how the mining industry can make (some surprisingly) sizeable contributions to the circular economy, and which could translate into societal benefits.
