FAB "The industrial value creation chain requires a continuous and reliable raw material supply in the long term. German mining activities abroad actively contribute towards securing natural resources for Germany and the European Union. We aim to nurture and encourage them as weil as continuing to expand medium-sized mining enterprises at home and abroad in keeping with requirements.”

FAB companies provide services for raw materials projects. The FAB represents the contact point for companies engaged in international mining and raw materials and concentrates on ensuring that its network partners are provided with the appropriate knowledge and backup. German industry contemplating foreign involvement in order to secure its raw materials supplies, finds a responsive partner in the FAB to execute economic activities on the natural resources sector abroad. FAB companies through their expertise provide necessary services for foreign raw materials projects. The FAB is the organization representing German companies mining abroad in Germany. Established over 30 years ago, the FAB looks after the industry-related interests of its members most of whom are based in Germany vis-a-vis politics, industry and the public.

Technische Hochschule Georg Agricola (THGA), University

For more than 200 years, natural resources have shaped the special profile of our university Technische Hochschule Georg Agricola (THGA). Today we have continued our legacy of industrial roots in a future-oriented way. In the unique Research Center of Post-Mining, experts explore how the complex tasks related to the closure, recultivation and follow-up of mining sites can be managed responsibly. Therefore, the scientific team is working together on an interdisciplinary basis in four research focuses:

  1. Perpetual tasks and minewater management
  2. Geomonitoring in post-mining
  3. Material sciences for the preservation of industrial heritage
  4. Reactivation and transition

The research activities currently focus on the tasks arising in connection with the discontinuation of active coal mining in Germany. That said, post-mining is by no means limited to the mining areas located in the Ruhr, Saar and Ibbenbüren districts. The Research Center see this as a global remit, and one that has potential for every other branch of mining throughout the world.

The Association of Mining, Geology and Environment (VBGU), an employers association, works since more than 30 years as a stakeholder of its currently 51 ordinary member companies (representing entrepreneurs of the branches especially geotechnics, mining, consultancy and companies which offers special services in mining).

VBGU represent the ordinary politico-economic and socio-political plus tariff interests of its member companies and support the companies for instance in research and development plus further education. VBGU provides for member companies access to economic and political decision makers at federal level and state level.

VBGU itself is well connected and a member of several employer associations and non-governmental bodies in the Federal Republic of Germany in ranges of labour law, waste legislation, mining law, environmental law and water rights. Our Association accompanies with its member companies i.a. for over 30 years the successful reclamation of mining legacies from uranium mining in Saxony and Thuringia, which is designed by Wismut GmbH.

With our member companies we will “together, create a sustainable future".

VDMA Mining

The VDMA Mining Association represents around 145, mainly medium-sized, mining supply companies that manufacture mining equipment and technology for surface and underground mining, processing and conveying of raw materials, supplemented by consulting and engineering services.

The member companies represent a turnover volume of around 3.2 billion euros (2021). With an export ratio of around 94%, the sector is one of the most export-intensive mechanical engineering branches in Germany. Important markets are North America, the regions of Europe, China and Russia, the Near/Middle East and, most recently, Australia.

VDMA Mining is the nucleus of the network of member companies and other players in the international mining industry. It supports the export of its member companies by many activities and initiatives at home and abroad. It is also involved in national and international standardisation together with the experts from its membership.

A special attention is currently being dedicated to the development of standards for "Machine 2 Machine" communication: This is a substantial condition for improvements in efficiency, environmental protection and safety in mining.

Finally, in cooperation with academia and industry, VDMA Mining promotes technical progress in the technology for extraction and processing of raw materials.
