Excerpts from introduction
WP4 developed within FORWAST project intended to provide comprehensive and validated data on material flows for different economy sectors of the life cycle of resources to waste, in a perspective of broad coverage of the EU territory.

Each of the following chapters discussed the country-specific data mining and processing along the mentioned below aspects:
• Presentation of data availability and data processing,
• Identification of gaps and filling them by estimations,
• Construction of SUTs MASTER matrices,
• Validation process and adjustment to reach consistency of data.
Chapter 24 contains summary of conclusions from data mining and processing as well as construction of SUTs MASTERs for the EU-23 countries.
