The FPB not only publishes the results of its research, but also a set of databases. These databases can contain either historical data or forecasts.
These accounts present the evolution of the domestic extraction of and the international trade in four types of materials (biomass, metal ores, non-metallic minerals, and fossil energy materials/-carriers) during the period 1995-2019. In addition, they also show flows from the economy to the environment, balancing items, and a set of indicators (part of which also expressed in raw material equivalents for the period 2008-2017).
The general purpose of Economy Wide Material Flow Accounts (EW-MFA) is to describe the interaction of the domestic economy with the natural environment and the rest of the world economy in terms of flows of materials (excluding water and air). The domestic economy is demarcated by the conventions of the national accounting system. The EW-MFA thus describe the interactions of resident units with the natural environment and with non-residents.
