Here's my MWE :

 \documentclass[10pt,twoside,a4paper,fleqn]{report}

  • In order to save some space, you might want to consider getting rid of the last column and use table notes instead. Especially, because there are some repetitive and long entries.

With longtable and threeparttablex you could achieve the following table that fits onto 2 pages:

  \item[b] No data can be found, aluminium is assumed to be produced locally, hence not changed

  \item[d] Data found from TUV certified company list
  \item[e] Secondary steel, produced locally through electric arc furnace 
  \item[f] Produced in Singapore
