Resource recycling

There is a need for resource recycling to supply all needs, prevent depletion of non-renewable resources and to protect ecosystems. Waste should be recovered or its disposal should serve ancillary purposes: landfilling (biogas capture), carbon capture & storage (enhance hydrocarbon recovery), nuclear waste (improved understanding of risk based management and biosphere processes). For producing the demanded goods, industrial/agricultural processing will impact the stocks of materials but will also depend on the availability and the quality of other resources (water, energy, land) in the producing areas. Essential mining should leave a legacy of restored natural capital.
