Watch: futurists predict construction, recycling and mining innovations
Volvo CE asked professional futurists David Zach and Glen Hiemstra to predict the future of several industries. Nanotechnology, self-healing surfaces, widespread use of solar energy and autonomous innovations will transform construction, waste management, recycling, agriculture and mining operations, according to the video. These innovations will lead to more efficient use of resources and advance the circular economy, and of course space mining sounds pretty cool!
