EMINENT - Energy MINerals for the NEtzero Transition
The main goal with the EMINENT project is to establish the basis for a complete value chain for seabed minerals with the goal of significant less environmental footprint compared to current land-based mining.
The project will develop and demonstrate new technology and methodology to perform in place evaluation of in-place-resources and performing environmental monitoring and baseline studies.
