Any form of capital available for use. In terms of manufacturing capital, any material or energy available for us in manufacturing, including industrial nutrients that used and recovered from manufacturing processes.

    Good morning!
    first of all: Thanks for the initiative!

    However, at least for a non-native speaker the text seems partly crumbled, e.g.:
    - “any material or energy available for us in manufacturing, …”
    better: any material or energy available for USE in manufacturing, …” ??

    - “including industrial nutrients that used and recovered from…”
    better: “including industrial nutrients that ARE used FOR and recovered from …” ??

    - “Humans also provide are resources, …”
    better: “Humans also provide resources,” ??

    Maybe it helps ;-)
    Best, Andreas
