The ProMine Project

Nano-particle products from new mineral resources in Europe

The non-energy extractive industry (NEEI) is a significant contributor to the economy of the EU providing metalliferous and non-metalliferous mineral resources to the society as well as direct and indirect employment. The philosophy behind ProMine is to stimulate the extractive industry to deliver new products to manufacturing industry. ProMine will kick-start a process of renewal whose momentum will carry over into the coming decennia.

Main objectives of the project:

Arrow To develop the first pan-European GIS-based database containing the known and predicted metalliferous and non-metalliferous resources, which together define the strategic reserves (including secondary resources) of the EU.

Arrow To calculate the volumes of potentially strategic metals (e.g. cobalt, niobium, vanadium, antimony, platinum group elements and REE) and minerals that are currently not extracted in Europe.

Arrow To develop five new, high value, mineral-based (nano) products.

Arrow To enlarge the number of profitable potential targets in Europe.

Arrow To establish a new, cross-platform information group between the European Technology Platform on Sustainable Mineral Resources (ETP-SMR) and other platforms.
