The Technical Workshop Channelling knowledge from European projects into the Raw Materials Information System (RMIS) was held virtually on December 3rd, 2020. The workshop was co-organized by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME). The workshop aimed to increase the awareness of EU raw materials project outputs, and how these can support the RMIS’ development needs and priorities. In particular, the workshop focused on 3 main topics:
Representing RemovAL, Mr. Balomenos highlighted that regarding bauxite residue and within the Al industry it is very difficult to track owners across different countries. He accentuated that the composition, geographical locations, annual
production of storage amounts, and owner receiving waste amounts are the information needed (through a catalogue) to make new sustainable processes of waste management. REMOVAL connection with RMIS is valuable as the EU wide primary and secondary raw materials database (with information especially in low grade ores, mining tailings and industrial residues) will help to replicate the REMOVAL methodology in future projects and other sectors.
