15 November 2021, Brussels, Belgium – To raise the awareness of raw materials, the EU funded SCRREEN2 project is launching the multilingual campaign Raw Materials for Future. The campaign will inform the European public and professional audiences about the key role these materials play in our everyday life and how they can help us reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The first SCRREEN workshop of 2021 has been held in Brussels from 20th to 22nd of October. Organised in different sessions all the following materials were screened: Zirconium, Helium, Hafnium, Cork, Strontium, Bentonite, Gallium, Diatomite, Tin, Fluorspar, Arsenic, Limestone, Phosphate rock and elemental phosphorus, Bore, and Rhenium. This three-day workshop has been moderated by the leaders of work packages 3 (market analysis), 4 (EU demand)
PRESS RELEASE The EU is highly dependent on critical raw materials (CRMs), which are crucial for a strong European industrial base. There is a need for an expert advice to better understand the value chains of the raw materials screened in the CRMs assessment in order to secure the sustainable access to primary and secondary raw materials and particularly Critical Raw
Six Expert Groups have been established in the SCRREEN project to support the development of the network with hopes to have their work to become a focal point of advice for decision making with regard to CRMs: Market, Governments & Policies, Resources, Circular Economy, Production, Substitution. Plans were made for the future to maintain and keep a Long Lasting Network of experts.
Four work package leaders agreed to answer a few questions and share their impression of achievements regarding their work packages, challenges, and their overall contribution in an exclusive interview.
