The goal of the project is to better understand and to optimise the management of strategic metal resources of the 21st century. In this context, RESSOURCES21 focuses in particular on the primary strategic metal resources (notably, the rare earths, Ni and Sn-W-Nb-Ta), in terms of geological processes of concentration, minerallurgy and environmental impact, as well as on the management of secondary resources and recycling.
