Natural resource management is one of today’s most serious challenges. Each year humans extract 100 billion tons of mineral resources and elements. For the last half of a century the resource consumption increased 25 times and the amount of wastes – 100 times. International experts agreed that rapid development of science and technical progress improve human life but destroys the environment.The fertility and productivity of our planet is not endless which threatens next generations to face with lack of natural resources. The way out seen by scientists is saving policies and usage of alternative energy sources.
