Raw Materials

Research programme on raw materials

The activities of the research programme concern the mining industries. In more detail:

  • the regulatory activities on the part of the regions, specifically with regards to the mining and energy activities transferred and/or intending to transfer to the regions and for which the authority of state guidelines still exists and which include, mines of solid and geothermal minerals, liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons and the strategic underground storage of methane gas and of CO2.
  • regional guidelines systems aimed at achieving the most effective and efficient use of mineral resources and of secondary raw materials.
  • systems for ‘listening’ to the needs/demands of economic operators in coherence with the development of a general regulatory framework (at regional, national, and local community level).
