Treee joined the European Raw Materials Alliance (ERMA),  a body launched by the European Commission on 29 September 2020, as announced in the Commission’s Action Plan on Critical Raw Materials on 3 September.

Treee has also been an official Partner of the EIT Rawmaterials will manage the stakeholder consultation process across the entire raw materials value chain, working with an innovation project-driven community, which brings together more than 150 industrial and non-industrial actors with the common objective of securing the supply of sustainable raw and advanced materials for industrial ecosystems in order to build Europe’s resilience and competitiveness.

EIT RawMaterials, initiated and funded by the EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology), a body of the European Union, is the largest consortium in the raw materials sector worldwide. Its vision is to develop raw materials into a major strength for Europe. Its mission is to enable sustainable competitiveness of the European minerals, metals and materials sector along the value chain by driving innovation, education and entrepreneurship.                                                             

The European Raw Materials Alliance (ERMA) aims to make Europe economically more resilient by diversifying its supply chains, creating jobs, attracting investments to the raw materials value chain, fostering innovation, training young talents and contributing to the best enabling framework for raw materials and the Circular Economy worldwide. The Alliance addresses the challenge of securing access to sustainable raw materials, advanced materials, and industrial processing know-how. By 2030, ERMA’s activities will increase the production of raw and advanced materials and address Circular Economy by boosting the recovery and recycling of Critical Raw Materials.

More specifically, the Alliance will: §Bolster the creation of environmentally sustainable and socially equitable innovations and infrastructure §Implement a Circular Economy of complex products like electric vehicles, clean tech, and hydrogen equipment §Support Europe’s raw materials industry capability, to extract, design, manufacture and recycle materials §Promote innovation, strategic investment, and industrial production across specific value chains
