The EC-funded project MIN-GUIDE is get to an innovation-friendly policy framework along the mineral production value chain. BIOMOre was asked to introduce the project as a best practice example in the minerals exploration and extraction field. The purpose was to show how technical project influence the policy making process as to getting to an innovation-friendly policy framework. The projects were asked to answer questions, how policies should look like to support the innovation-friendliness in the sector. BIOMOre is one example for a process that is currently not at all or only in small parts covered by any European legislation. This situation will likely make the full-scale implementation of the BIOMOre process rather complicated as to the permitting.
