Benefits

the activities to the EIP-RM

1.- Ensure the sustainable supply of raw materials for


the construction sector including largest volume of
industrial rocks (aggregates, sand, clays, gypsum, natural
stone, etc) and metallic minerals (iron, aluminium,..) which
represent about 80 % of the mining activities in Europe
2.- Enhance the processes associated to CDW with an
harmonization of the techniques and innovative solutions
for recycling products that are nowadays not recycled.
3.- Define and develop the urban-mining concept in
the European regions in concordance with the
environmental policies
