Study on pilot plants and innovative technologies

In the framework of the proposed European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials, the European Commission has commissioned a study to identify and assess possible pilot plants and innovative technologies in the area of raw materials along the entire value chain.

A consortium, led by TNO (and as partners Euromines, d’Appolonia, BRGM, Ifremer, NTUA, the University of Leoben, CIKTN) (and endorsed by the ETP-SMR) has been tasked to collect information and suggestions on innovative technologies and pilot plants throughout the EU-27, and propose criteria and indicators to come to a prioritization among these suggestions.

The final results will be published mid-2013.
