PUMA aims at composing a geological map of the urban mine of Amsterdam for a selection of metals. Where are main deposits of copper, iron and aluminium located, when will they become available for secondary production, in what state and shape are they?
|Looptijd||2015 - 2016|
|Financiering||Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solution (AMS)|
We will combine the detailed information of the Amsterdam built environment with general knowledge on cities’ metabolism and data on the metal content of different types of buildings to generate a map of the urban mine. This project can be seen as a pilot project for further research.
