Within project 1.3 the multitude of data obtained will be filtered and summarized in order to form a comprehensive database on how to evaluate different residues. Based on the results of projects 1.1 and 1.2, the fundamentals for a guideline for the certification of secondary resources will be developed, similar to internationally accepted guidelines for primary resources such as JORC or NI-43101. This particular project is a strategic one, led by Montanuniversität Leoben in collaboration with all project partners under supervision of an external advisory board. The board consists of specialists, registered and recognized as competent persons (CP) in the fields of geology, metallurgy and financial accounting. Dealing intensively with the topic for years and preparing the basis for new technologies will help to establish Styria/Austria as competence leader in the sector of metallurgical recycling.
