Abstract

This deliverable reports the survey done in SCRREEN project in Task 4.3 relating to environmental trends and Circular Economy (CE) aspects of CRM production. For each CRM, the Circular Economy aspects were addressed in order to identify
the gaps that limit performance of the processing chains, hinder closing the loop and hinder a zero-waste CRM production. Information on processes, production, solutions and eco-design principles for closing the loop of raw materials in order to support the zero-waste point-of-view, resource efficiency and energy efficiency simultaneously were gathered. In addition, the aspects supporting Circular Economy were evaluated trying to resolve the identified challenges. Lastly, the environmental issues e.g. toxicity related to CRMs production were reviewed.
