The DRAGON project will foster sustainable domestic supply of mineral resources within the EU by maximizing the use of excavation materials both on site and in a wide range of industrial sectors. This approach to create valuable secondary mineral resources is estimated to generate a direct annual value of around 150 million EUR.
The automated online analysis and processing units to be developed within the DRAGON project will constitute a real breakthrough in the underground construction sector. This will help European companies to gain innovation leadership and strengthen their competitive position in this promising market.
The key environmental benefits include a substantial reduction in environmental pollution, CO2 emissions and land use for the disposal of excavation material thus approaching the aim of achieving zero waste in underground construction.
