On 16 September 2015, the Minor Metals Trade Association and the International Magnesium Association organised a conference focused on CRMs and your business. The event was covered in the November issue of the MMTA Crucible.
The CRM Alliance was amongst the speakers. Other speakers came from the European Commission, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in Germany, the Ministry for Environment, Climate and Energy, Baden-Württemberg, Cellmark Metals German, Tasman Metals and the Indium Corporation.
On behalf of the CRM Alliance, Heleen Vollers explained the role of the stakeholder group in promoting and protecting the interests of those involved in CRMs. The group works together to provide relevant information to the EU policy makers on CRMs, such as the European Commission, Members of the European Parliament, important mining country representations to the EU and downstream users of CRMs. The Alliance has organised events on how CRMs should be considered in terms of industrial and trade policy and REACH. The group now covers 15 of the 20 CRM materials and has been granted observer status at various EU raw material groups. The EU needs input from industry to make the right decisions, and the Alliance is working hard to provide this.
