BIOMOre: Research on future mining

Funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program

Different supply/demand forecasts estimate a lack of raw materials leading to higher costs or even no more availability in the future at all.

The EU consumes 20 to 35% of the most important base metals worldwide while importing more than 80% of its commodities representing more than 23 billion euros per year.

We would like to engage with our stakeholders in a very early stage of the project activities as part of the project’s communication and dissemination strategy and to look for our stakeholder’s demands and expectations, especially in the context of the so-called “Social Licence to Operate” (SLO).

The BIOMOre project mainly aims at extracting metals, economically and ecologically optimised, from deep mineralized zones.


The BIOMOre concept of using in-situ recovery as a minimal-footprint mining technique has significant potential environmental and health benefits.
