Australias National Material Intensity

Unfortunately, data are not available to calculate accurately Australia's 'total material consumption' and 'total material emissions', and thus its national material intensity. However, the above sections on inputs, outputs and materials stocked provide a preliminary indication that Australia's current industrial ecology is highly material-intensive. Inefficient levels of recycling, waste mining, dematerialization and dissipative resource use control also inhibit closing of the materials cycle, thus hindering the development of a sustainable Australian industrial ecology.
