I study the role of metals in society across spatial and temporal scales. By characterizing detailed life cycles I illustrate how the metals of modern technology are produced, traded, used, and recycled. This forms the basis for efficiency evaluations at the level of material use and recycling, for criticality assessments, and for scenarios on the future supply and demand of metals.
