On 10 and 11 October, the 2nd Exploitation Seminar of the Horizon2020 project GREENPEG (www.greenpeg.eu) took place in Leipzig (Germany).
Ciaotech and PNO as project partners supported all the exploitation activities and gave an outlook on the next steps to develop a solid techno-economic analysis and business plan.
The GREENPEG project has developed an exploration toolset to discover hidden pegmatites more easily while reducing costs. Pegmatites are specific types of magnetic rocks that are typically enriched in critical raw materials such as lithium and rare earth elements needed for the clean energy transition (e.g. battery storage). The meeting marks a milestone in the successful transition to the exploitation phase.
