Two new important strategic projects launched


Update of the Fossil-free roadmap

In 2018, the mining industry, as one of the first in Sweden, developed the a roadmap for fossil free mining and steel production. This was done within the framework of Fossil-free Sweden. The work was led by Svemin and financed by Swedish Mining Innovation. Since 2018 much has happened and the industry is taking rapid steps in the transformation towards becoming fossil free, and there is an obvious need for an update of the roadmap. The update will also include the aspects of energy need and availability, add have a more future- and product-oriented perspective, both national and global. The roadmap will be completed in the autumn.
