Resum

In this work, we provide a historical series of the material extraction, trade, and use indicators contained within the Material Flow Accountability methodology—which is an internationally standardized system to quantify resource use at a regional level. Drawing on our results, we examine the transition to industrial metabolism in Spain, highlighting: i) a quick increase in material consumption (400 % per capita growth) and in the transition to non-renewable resource use, especially between 1960 and 2007; ii) a transition from net exporter (until ca. 1930) to net importer (desde ca. 1960); iii) a persistent decrease in material intensity; and iv) a sudden drop in material use after the Great Recession.
