While the rubbish mountain is growing, raw materials are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive all over the world. For decades, natural resources have been shipped to industrialized countries and used in tower blocks, mobile phones, cars and other things. Thus, cities contain enormous amounts of raw materials. Researchers and companies are now starting to prospect urban mines for precious metals and minerals. So far, they are stuck in the walls of condemned buildings, long forgotten landfills and disused everyday electronic devices. Those huge and growing urban mines must be explored and put to use systematically in order to ensure reliable long-term access to raw materials in resource-poor countries.
