Following the 2018 success, a political evening kick-off in the form of a professionally moderated podium discussion is planned as a prelude to the information-packed days. Under the headline: “Domestic mineral raw materials – indispensable as a basis for housing, mobility and industrial production”, resource experts, business representatives and parliamentarians of various factions in the German Bundestag will present and discuss their positions and goals regarding the status of domestic mineral raw materials in the Federal Government’s raw materials policy.
Along with the address of welcome by MIRO President Dr. Ing. Gerd Hagenguth and a political greeting from the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community, the opening part will be characterized by an exciting lecture held by Leon Klein, which will offer a look at the topics of IT security and cybercrime with particular relevance in the extractive industry and recommend effective protection mechanisms.
The subsequent two parallel sessions in workshop format will tackle important issues of the industry concerning the securing of raw materials, alternative building materials, approval procedures and raw material extraction in the context of fiscal charges. In addition, the use of alternative energies and innovative technical solutions will play a special role this year. Specifically the latter are gaining in importance for the processing of raw material fractions that are of little value because they are technically not usable. Tips on the topic of corporate management and personnel management as well as a comprehensive trade exhibition complement the diverse offer.
