New innovation projects for DMT in the raw materials sector

DMT continues to lead the way in the EIT RawMaterials Program initiated by the EU and, along with international partners, they will develop innovative technologies and services for the European natural resources sector within the framework of several projects.

Already in the first two years of the EIT RawMaterials Program, DMT launched a number of innovative projects, such as the development of an automatic shaft inspection system, an integrated monitoring concept for tailing dams, a certification system for the sustainable production of critical raw materials as well as multiple projects for the evaluation and use of natural resource deposits. This year a total of 11 innovation project applications, developed by DMT Project Coordinator Norbert Benecke and his team, have been approved. The kick-off for new projects, in which DMT will work closely with mining industry partners and renowned practice-oriented research institutes from all over Europe, is scheduled for the beginning of 2018.
