In a country where the majority of people are not literate, there are no standardized definitions for how many grams of precious metal are used for a specific process, and how much can be consumed.
For many in China, the question is often not about what is used, but how much to be consumed, in what quantities, and where.
The new report, “Sustainability and Safety of the Future: A Survey of Materials and Processes in the Chinese Market,” by the International Institute of Strategic Studies (IISS), comes from the China Association of Materials Manufacturers (CAMMA), which represents more than 100 manufacturers of precious metals, including gold and silver, palladium and platinum, and silver and platinum.
The report focuses on the use of precious materials in manufacturing processes and in energy production in China.
It was conducted by the IISS and the Beijing-based China Materials Institute (CMII).
It is a collaboration between the IIS and CAMMA.
The two organizations also work on a variety of research and analysis.
The IISS survey focused on materials used in the production of jewelry and gemstones, as well as for packaging and other products.
The survey found that only a small percentage of the metal used in China is used for its primary use, which is for a metal catalyst, according to the report.
Only 9 percent of the material used for this primary purpose is used in other applications, and just 3 percent is used as a secondary product, such as for electrical components.
The study also found that less than 5 percent of all the metal needed for the primary metal catalyst is used directly for a secondary metal.
In some cases, a portion of the precious metal can be used to enhance the primary catalyst’s performance.
Some of the primary metals used in Chinese manufacturing are used in jewelry, such to make bracelets, necklaces, neckrings, and earrings, for example.
They include copper, gold, silver, and platinum (for example, 1.5 percent each).
A portion of those metals is used to make jewelry, too, and a larger portion of that is used on the jewelry itself.
Other primary metals that are used are used to produce catalysts that produce heat.
They are usually used for catalytic converters, which convert heat energy into electrical energy, and heat exchangers, which exchange heat energy for oxygen, according the IISC report.
The researchers found that the primary and secondary metals used for the manufacturing of jewelry, jewelry products, and cosmetics are not interchangeable.
For example, jewelry and cosmetics with a platinum metal are more expensive than jewelry and jewelry products with an aluminum metal.
The metals used are also different, the report said.
For instance, the metals used to manufacture jewelry are generally made of less dense metals that require more energy to produce, and are less dense than the metals required for the production and use of electrical devices.
For example, the platinum metal used to process jewelry is a mix of aluminum and a copper alloy, but the amount of aluminum is so small that the amount needed to produce it is so large that it will not be used for any purpose other than to produce a catalytic converter, the IISA report said, according a press release.
The most common types of metals used by Chinese manufacturing companies are used only in small quantities.
For a metal used as the primary ingredient, for instance, only a very small percentage is used.
For jewelry, the metal that is the primary component is usually used in a very large proportion of the materials used for jewelry.
The analysis found that some metals are used more than once, depending on the purpose.
For copper, for which the primary element is usually found, only 10 percent of it is used twice.
For gold, the primary material is usually the same material used on both the primary elements and the secondary materials, according CMII.
The researchers found only about a 10 percent difference between the amounts of the two metals.
For gold, for use as the catalyst in jewelry and other metals, about 5 percent is recycled for the secondary purpose, the researchers found.
The metal used for copper is usually a mixture of copper and copper alloy.
It is not always the same, but is used mostly in the form of pure copper, which makes up about one-third of the total weight of the alloy.
For platinum, the copper is typically made up of other metals and some other substances.
The amount of the secondary material is small, and only a little is used by the primary product.
The primary metals are not only used in manufacturing, but also in many other areas.
For the primary process, for the manufacture of metals for electrical devices, for packaging, and for cosmetics, a certain amount of these metals is recycled to make a primary catalyst.
For jewelry, about 20 percent of metal is recycled into jewelry and about 15 percent is reused for other applications.
For cosmetics, only about 10 percent is replaced.
For the secondary process, a higher proportion of metal was recycled for recycling,
