Innovative technologies for sustainable and decarbonised extraction (RIA)

Deadline: 20 April 2023

A secure supply of sustainable raw materials is crucial for the green and digital transition. Project outcomes will enable achieving the expected impacts of the destination by increasing access to primary raw materials, in particular critical raw materials for EU industrial value chains and strategic sectors.

Projects are expected to contribute to the following outcomes:

  • Develop innovative technologies for extraction of raw materials in the European Union and increase the domestic EU sourcing of them;
  • Improve responsible supply of raw materials in line with the EU principles for sustainable raw materials;
  • Show the potential to reduce the Green House Gases (GHGs) emissions, thus contributing to EU climate neutrality objectives.
  • Accelerate development of EU domestic raw materials exploration projects integrating innovative technologies.

Actions should develop new sustainable concepts and technological solutions, including alternative approaches, for mining of complex or difficult access mineral deposits;
Actions should be driven by industry and raw materials users while prioritising the EU critical raw materials;
And lastly, actions should envisage clustering activities with other relevant select projects co-operation, consultations, joint activities on cross-cutting issues and share the results as well as participating in joint meetings and communication events.
