Development of a new mechanical method to open section galleries in the ornamental stone sector

Objective



The extraction, preparation and commercialisation of ornamental stone is one of the sectors in which the European Union is unquestionable the world leader, with 50% of world production. The severe environmental impact and low profirability of these exploitations in Europe implies inevitably a change to underground mining specifically developed for this type of mine. It is intended to develop new technology to provide basic tools which allow for more efficient underground mining of ornamental stone deposits, developing a system to open circular section galleries which could be excavated in every type of material.
