 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'European Commission Vice President Günter Verheugen, responsible for enterprise and industry policy declared "European industries need predictability in the flow of raw materials and stable prices to remain competitive. We are committed to improve the conditions of access to raw materials, be it within Europe or by creating a level playing field in accessing such materials from abroad.” The global dimension of access to raw materials was on the agenda of the G8 Summit on June 2007. On that occasion a Declaration on "Responsibility for raw materials: transparency and sustainable growth" was adopted. Several national and international initiatives, both from the private or the institutional sectors, arised to address the sustainable development of the extractive industry and the reduction of its environmental footprint. Meanwhile, the extractive industry is facing increasing environmental and societal pressures, being regulatory or not, during all phases of a project, from exploration to exploitation and closure. The social acceptability of a project is among the major key issues to be dealt with. EO-MINERS scientific and technical objectives are to: - assess policy requirements at macro (public) and micro (mining companies) levels and define environmental, socio-economic, societal and sustainable development criteria and indicators to be possibly dealt using EO - use existing EO knowledge and carry out new developments on demonstration sites to further demonstrate the capabilities of integrated EO-based methods and tools in monitoring, managing and contributing reducing the environmental and societal footprints of the extractive industry during all phases of a mining project, from the exploration to the exploitation and closure stages - contribute making available reliable and objective information about affected ecosystems, populations and societies, to serve as a basis for a sound “trialogue” between industrialists, governmental organisations and stakeholder'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Earth Observation (EO) services are being developed by EU researchers to monitor the impact of mining. To take the appropriate action, we must find out how mining activities are affecting our environment.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

In recent years, an increasing percentage of the raw materials such as minerals that the EU consumes has been imported. This means that the environmental footprint of the EU's material consumption has shifted from Europe to other parts of the world. Thus, understanding and monitoring pollution processes in mining areas is of global concern.

EO methods are required to monitor and observe the environmental and societal impacts of mining. These include satellites in space and sensors on the ground, at sea or in the air. The EO-Miners project, funded by the EU, will use EO-based methodology and tools to monitor the exploration and mining of mineral resources.

An extensive review of stakeholder policies related to the impact of the mining and mineral industry has been carried out by the project. Interviews and meetings of local stakeholders have been conducted at mines in the Czech Republic, Kyrgyzstan and South Africa. In addition, a considerable amount of EO-based data and other information has been collected about these mining test sites.

Based on the policy analysis, the EO-Miners project has identified a list of over 50 relevant indicators. These will be used to assess the environmental, socioeconomic and societal footprints of the mineral extraction industry at every stage, from site exploration through exploitation until closure.

The EO-Miners project has laid the foundations for environmental monitoring of the test sites. Based on further results, the project will develop a 'trialogue' between the three main groups involved. These three-way discussions will help reconcile interests so as to reach a common agreement on actions to deal with the environmental and societal impacts of mining activities.
