Raw materials

Raw materials are naturally occurring substances that have not undergone any treatment. They serve as a basis for the production of new products.

Raw materials are rocks, salt, wood and ores, for example. Naturally occurring raw materials are not infinite. If the extraction of raw materials is operated on a large scale, it can lead to serious environmental problems. Recycling and recovery can make a significant contribution to the saving of raw materials.
