Concept Note

Development ID#


This proposed methodology is globally applicable and applies to project activities that recover and recycle materials (metals, minerals, and glass) from solid waste streams into intermediate or finished products. The recovered and recycled materials displace the production of virgin materials, thereby reducing energy consumption and GHG emissions associated with the production of virgin materials.
