EU Consultation on raw materials

The European Commission has opened a public consultation on strategic raw materials policy, looking at raw materials for which shortages and supply could become critical for European industry and society in coming years. Issues addressed include trade conditions and recycling.

At present, phosphates are not one of the 14 materials identified by the initial report used as the basis for this Consultation. The European chemical and phosphate industries have replied to the consultation emphasising that phosphates are essential for Europe’s industry, agriculture and food, are mainly imported, and are a strategic resource for the future.

EU consultation open until 19th September 2010
