SUSTAINABLE AGGREGATES RESOURCE MANAGEMENTSARMa STATUS OF THE PROJECT & IT’S IMPACT Quality Management Board meeting Budapest, June 28, 2010 Lead partner: Geological Survey of Slovenia Slavko Šolar
Shifting to sustainable aggregate resource management (SARM) and encouraging sustainable supply mix (SSM) policies. to develop common approach to sustainable aggregate resource management (SARM) and to ensuresustainable supply mix (SSM) planning, at three scales, to ensure efficient and secure supply in SEE. Main objective of the project
Local level • Optimize the efficiency of primary aggregates production, and prevent or minimize environmental impacts of quarrying and improve reclamation, • minimize illegal quarrying by improving knowledge, • promote recycling (construction, demolition & quarry waste)
Regional/national level • Develop strategies for sustainably managing aggregate resources, including in protected areas, considering aggregate resources in land management and use planning, and harmonizing policies across regions, • Develop guidelines and procedures for SSM planning.
Transnational level • Recommend methods for harmonizing SARM & SMM transregionally and transnationally, • Design a multi-purpose and multi-scale Aggregates Intelligence System (AIS) as a long-term tool for know-how transfer. • Follow-up: prepare plan for a Regional Centre on SARM & SSM, to increase capacity of all interested and affected groups through workshops training and educational materials.

Summary of Chapter and Recommendations • Developing an information platform to assess the conflicts of deposits with other land uses: The long term access to deposits should be taken into account in land use planning. Cross-border geological projects as eWater, eEarth, One Geology, FODD and SARMa might be combined with other relevant information services to visualise deposits and their potential conflicts at the European and regional level.

Summarizing and Outlook • SARMa project was successfully launched in May 2009 • June 2010 is turning point with regard to outputs (mostly after 4th and 6th period) • SARMa made impact within SEE and also within European Union (Commission and industry) • Project progress can be observed on www.sarmaproject.eu
