www.materialflows.net is an online portal for material flow data, providing access to material flow data sets on the national level. The website is based on the worldwide unique comprehensive database on global resource extraction - the SERI/WU Global Material Flows Database, set up and administrated by SERI (Sustainable Europe Research Institute) and the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU Vienna), in cooperation with the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IFEU) and the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment, Energy. The database comprises data for more than 200 countries, the time period of 1980 to 2011, and more than 300 different materials aggregated into 12 categories of material flows.



We are proud to announce the finalization of a brand new dynamic Opens external link in new windowvisualization tool. It allows you to design graphs according to your interests, compare indicators of different types and by that means get an even broader understanding of our MFA data.

Beginning of 2016 we will also finalize the update of our database. It will then encompass the period 1980-2012 for extraction and trade data. The update will set a new standard regarding comprehensiveness and quality of the covered data.
