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 first comprehensive database on global resource extraction, set up and administrated by SERI (Sustainable Europe Research Institute) and WU Vienna, in cooperation with the independent researcher Monika Dittrich and the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment, Energy. The database comprises data for more than 200 countries, the time period of 1980 to 2010, and more than 300 different materials aggregated into 12 categories of material flows.


Data update 1980 - 2010

The updated global data set is now available! The data set now covers the years 1980-2010. You can access the updated data in the dedicated download and visualisation sections! However, please be aware that the trade data is still work in progress and will be finished in the coming weeks.

New fact sheets for download

We are proud to present a new download section where we present six new fact sheets which describe and illustrate several aspects which are related to resource extraction and use. A number of figures and graphs visualise these aspects and relations and allow for their better understanding. The fact sheets can be found here - please send comments to info(at)materialflows.net
