the Challenge of CRM-EXTREME
The Action focuses on the substitution of CRMs (like Cr, Co, Nb, W, Y, and other rare earth elements) in high value alloys and metal-matrix composites used under extreme conditions of temperature, loading, friction, wear, corrosion, in Energy, Transportation and Machinery manufacturing industries.
This will strengthen EU competence to gain the leadership in efficient use of raw materials, to achieve what is foreseen in the EU roadmaps towards 2050 . EU can count on its excellence in areas of knowledge crucial to CRMs, while its high-tech Small-Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and automotive, aerospace and energy industries can ensure suitable innovation paths from labs to market.
The impact of the network on the selected industrial fields is also enhanced through cooperation with related initiatives, like the the network EXTREME and the EIP commitment SUBST-EXTREME.
