Hear from Roger Morton, Managing Director of Technology and Innovation at EMR, on the rise of urban mining and its pivotal role in the protection of virgin materials.

Urban mining is a philosophy that sees the material we recycle not as waste but as a valuable resource that can help us save the planet and keep valuable materials right here in the UK.

Roger discusses the technological advances that enable us to ‘mine’ these materials and how the ‘urban mine’ can help transform the UK economy and support businesses of all kinds to meet their carbon reduction targets.
