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 - WU Global Material Flows Database, set up and administrated by the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU Vienna). The database comprises data for more than 200 countries, the time period of 1980 to 2013, and more than 300 different materials aggregated into 12 categories of material flows.
