This figure shows the material productivity (GDP in millions of 2011 US$ (converted to 2011 price level with updated 2005 EKS PPPs) per tonnes DMC) for the EU27 member states and selected other countries in 2000 and 2009 respectively 2008.
The methodology for the calculation of DMI / DMC was revised by Eurostat in 2007. For Fig. 4, the data are calculated after the revised methodology. Therefore, the data set compromises the consistency in order to provide an extended temporal coverage. For non-EU countries, we used the MFA data compiled by the Wuppertal Institute on behalf of OECD (not published yet).

Anything you pour down your drain, sink or toilet can eventually end up in our rivers or sea! Never dispose of liquids such as oils, grease, or hazardous liquids – like paint thinners or unused paint – by pouring them down the drain. Instead, collect them in one box and dispose with the rest of your waste. Keep them all in their individual packaging, to avoid possible chemical reactions. This will also make it easier for them to be identified during waste collection. If applicable, take them to your community collection point.
