Joint Euromines / industriAll European Trade Union event : “European extractive industries"

Strategic raw materials are vital for key industrial value chains in Europe and essential for the manufacture of green technologies that will enable Europe to meet its climate objectives. This event will be aimed at presenting the challenges of European extractive industries in sourcing sustainable raw materials for the Green Deal. We will specifically discuss how European domestic mining can help in improving the sustainability of critical raw materials sources for Europe and which are the challenges related to that. By exchanging on best practice experiences of mining in Europe, speakers will also raise their views on what can be improved from a regulatory and technological perspective.

Lightweighting as a Contribution to the EU’s Green Deal

The demand for raw materials is continuously increasing in Europe and globally. Lightweighting materials and lightweight design are a promising way to reduce both, the demand for energy and resources. In this respect, lightweighting can contribute substantially to the European Green Deal which strives for a climate neutral economy by 2050. Europe’s carbon and graphite sector is key to several ecosystems such as e-mobility, aerospace, defence, renewables, digital economy and general engineering and manufacturing.
This webinar is hosted by the European Multi-material Lightweight Alliance and with support of ECGA and Composites United.

ROBOMINERS project 

The EU-funded ROBOMINERS project (grant agreement nº 820971) will be hosting its second Clustering Event on the 18 November 2021. The first featured presentations from 10 EU-funded raw materials projects. The second event will take a hybrid format (online and in person) and will connect the ROBOMINERS project experts at a meeting in Leoben, Austria and local stakeholder clustering groups, in conjunction with the Raw Materials Week 2021 (Brussels, Belgium).
In order to assure a sustainable, socially and environmentally friendly supply of raw materials in the future, exploitation of raw materials will need to become more automatic, by removing people from mines, and replacing them with autonomous or remotely controlled machines. However, there are many technical challenges which need to be overcome. Therefore, the topic of this 2nd ROBOMINERS Clustering Event is “The key technological obstacles towards a fully autonomous robotic mining (eco)system”. In this event, new, innovative and future-potential technologies from the raw materials value chain that might become a staple and shift the future outlook of mining towards more sustainable and socio-economic benefits will be presented and discussed.
A number of EU projects and initiatives that are supporting these changes on the mining landscape are invited to present and discuss the outcomes and potential of their technologies, services and products. The first part of the event will present several short (5′) presentations on key technological challenges, followed by a roundtable with participants to further explore possibilities, foster collaboration and contribute to solve these challenges.

The road to a sustainable and circular value chain for wind energy

Initiated by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate, over 150 stakeholders including industry, authorities, research institutes, NGO’s representing the complete value chain of wind energy have joined forces to analyse needs, opportunities and risks on the road towards a sustainable and circular value chain for wind energy. Three working groups have studied knowhow, regulations and industry status, from mining and refining through production, end-use, re-use and re-furbish and recycling all aimed at saving materials at its highest value possible. The ultimate goals is to organise and start up circularity hubs across Europe that will render Europe less vulnerable to imported raw (critical) materials and will generate jobs in a business worth 25 billion Euro between now and 2050.

In the black'21 workshop

IN THE BLACK’21, focusing this year on “IMPACT ASSESSMENT FOR FUTURE EXPLOITATION OF UNDERWATER MINERALS”, is expected to generate renewed momentum to the Raw Materials Community in general. In addition to strengthening the connections between the IN THE BLACK community, we aim to redefine future enabling strategies.

This year IN THE BLACK will be the driving force to set up the "Portuguese" Raw Materials Week that will include two important side events: the MineHeritage Project FINAL MEETING (funded by the EIT Raw Materials Academy), and the inSITE Workshop (Upscaling project funded by EIT Raw Materials). This week will take place between 23-26 November in Porto (Portugal) at the School of Engineering of Porto|ISEP. WEBSITE: http://www.strongmar.eu/site/in-the-black-2021-123
