One response to “What is REMINE?

  1. ”Incontrovertibly, the establishment of ”Remine project” is a step in the right direction. The Act, captioned ”Directive 2006/21/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 March 2006 on management of waste from extractive industries” which of course includes mine and quarry industries, suggest managerial practice of waste recovery by recycling, re-using or reclaiming, and this is the objective of the Remine project. Certainly, there shall no be classification of waste produced from mine and quarry industries, as these products through technological approach are being put into effective use for the benefits of our society, precisely, in the wise of infrastructure and building products. As an African, i strongly believe this success of this project would end Africa’s nightmare or incompetency per mine and quarry waste management, since issues regarding excessive capital investment in waste disposal, the environmental impact and many others would be at a halt.”
