In this series of talks we invite scientists to explore the challenges, opportunities, technologies and methods relevant to studying the future of resource use. This includes topics such as circular economy, mining and critical raw materials. The aim is to share knowledge across Leiden University, TU Delft and Erasmus University Rotterdam; to exchange ideas; and to support interdisciplinary discussion on the future of resources.
Jessie Bradley will talk us through her MSc thesis “The Future of Nickel in a Transitioning World”, in which she explored the development of the global nickel supply chain and its externalities between 2015 and 2060, under different disruption scenarios, sustainability policies and uncertainties. She did this at the level of individual mines, with a focus on the energy-material nexus and supply chain resilience.
