A non-renewable resource (also called a finite resource) is a resource that does not renew itself at a sufficient rate for sustainable economic extraction in meaningful human time-frames.
An example is carbon-based, organically-derived fuel. The original organic material, with the aid of heat and pressure, becomes a fuel such as oil or gas.

Hey everyone, I am getting married this fall and was wondering what the best option is for groomsmen suits, buying or renting?
Crowe’s character, an update on Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr.
Henry Jekyll, is presented as a gateway to that universe, and a representative of Prodigium, an organization that deals directly with the problems caused by gods and monsters.
The town of Augusta is about to make bank off diehard Anthropologie fans. The craziest fact unearthed by Effortless Anthropologie is that the clothes sold at the shop date back to 2008.
As reported by Racked Philly, a reader of the Anthro-obsessed blog Effortless Anthropologie made a pilgrimage to Final Cut, the under-the-radar store in Georgia where clearance items from Anthropologie, BHLDN, Free People, and Urban Outfitters end up. According to EA, Anthropologie has stored them all in a warehouse, and now Final Cut staff members are still in the process of unpacking all the boxes.
In contrast, resources such as timber (when harvested sustainably) and wind (used to power energy conversion systems) are considered renewable resources, largely because their localized replenishment can occur within time frames meaningful to humans.
These processes generally take from tens of thousands to millions of years, through plate tectonics, tectonic subsidence and crustal recycling.
The localized deposits of metal ores near the surface which can be extracted economically by humans are non-renewable in human time-frames.
Earth minerals and metal ores are examples of non-renewable resources.
The metals themselves are present in vast amounts in Earth's crust, and their extraction by humans only occurs where they are concentrated by natural geological processes (such as heat, pressure, organic activity, weathering and other processes) enough to become economically viable to extract.
