Raw materials innovations
Sandvik is one of the 100-plus leading companies and research and academic institutions that have partnered up to create sustainable growth from raw materials innovations.
Finding replacements to current critical elements in hard materials production is a key driver for the company. "To give an example of the benefits from this initiative we can develop more automated mining in extreme conditions which will enable our customers to source sustainable raw materials. We can also form cost efficient substitution and recycling processes and pioneering solutions fit for their future needs", says Anna Hultin Stigenberg, Principal R&D Expert in Sandvik Coromant and Chair of the International Steering Comittee KIC Raw Materials.
