Participating in "made in France" procurement is one of SUDMINE's objectives. SUDMINE has therefore identified a number of projects for strategic metals, as part of the energy transition, contributing to local and short circuit supply for France.
According to the Comité des Métaux Stratégiques (Comes) the development of French industrial skills in the recycling of critical metals is necessary for French independence in critical metals but will in no way be sufficient. This is why SUDMINE wants to be an actor of France's independence for strategic metals.
In a context where carbonaceous fossil fuels (oil, coal, etc.) are tending to be replaced by energies requiring large quantities of metals (solar panels, wind turbines, etc.), SUDMINE aims to be a protagonist in the fields of energy transition and strategic metals for the independence and reindustrialisation of France, while at the same time promoting short circuits in strict compliance with environmental regulations.
SUDMINE's ambition in mainland France is to develop strategic metal operations:
