Abstract:Material Passports are majorly influencing the future of economy by providing a solution for the raw material crises.The goal of this research is defining the fundamental characteristics of material passports in order to have a clear overview of their role into the current economy. The actual demand for raw materials does not match the supply which concludes in a need for improving the factors supporting a circular economy, such as material passports. Due to the innovative matter of material passports, a clear definition and a characterization of the topic are lacking in the scientific literature. For that reason, we pose the central research question: “What are the fundamental characteristics which define the concept of material passports?”. Both the alliable scientific researches and grey literature will be consulted in order to formulate a clear definition of the “material passports” and to create a structured classification of its concepts. The key impact of this research is to increase the understanding and the awareness about research passports in order to further positively affect the economy.
