Domestic material consumption amounted to almost 30 million tonnes (14.4 million tonnes per capita) in 2018 and was 18% higher than in 2013. The amount of biomass utilized increased by 25% compared to 2013, the amount of mineral resources exploitation increased by 27% while the amount of fossil energy used decreased by 20% compared to 2013. In 2018, the import to Slovenia was 4 million tons higher than the export.

 


This indicator shows domestic material consumption and direct material input, the structure of domestic material consumption and international comparison of material consumption per capita.

Domestic material consumption (DMC) is used to measure the total mass of all solid, liquid and gaseous materials (with the exception of water and air that are not directly contained in materials) obtained from natural resources (domestic natural resources + import and export) that enter production and consumption processes in a certain country within a year. Direct material flows are divided into six main groups: biomass (from agriculture, forestry, fishing, hunting and gathering), metallic and non-metallic mineral resources, fossil energy sources, waste and other.

Direct material input (DMI) is used to measure direct input of materials to be used in an economy, i.e. all materials that have economic value and are used in manufacturing activities and consumption; DMI includes materials obtained (and used) within a certain country and the total import of materials.

Goals

  • To decouple economic growth from resource use, increase competitiveness and improve reliability of supply;
  • To improve economy efficiency while reducing pressures on the environment.
