    “The European mineral raw materials sector – an essential, innovative industry throughout the value chain”

    On Tuesday 7 May 2013, Prof. Vladko Todorov Panayotov hosted a cocktail reception in the European Parliament in Brussels for the launch of the Exhibition organized on the occasion of the European Minerals Day 2013.

    Prof. Panayotov warmly welcomed the 150 stakeholders to the European Minerals Day exhibition which illustrated how mineral raw materials contribute to innovation and resource-efficiency through the whole value chain; from extraction, processing and transformation, to usage (in downstream sectors) and recycling. He stressed how important it was to raise awareness about the role of minerals; "Metals and minerals are our past, present and future," he said.
