Research on future mining

Initiative Type: Projects

Belém Statement Area: Ocean Technology

Initiative Location: Austria,Finland,France,Germany,Poland,South Africa,Spain,Sweden,United Kingdom

Time Frame: Concluded in 2018


BIOMOre is striving to reduce the gap between European supply and the demand for metal and mineral resources by providing an alternative mining method in order to get access to and exploit mineral deposits that would neither be accessible nor exploitable using traditional mining methods. This planned new mining method may be applied to newly discovered deposits as well as an extension of existing mines.
