What is it about?

This work shows how the equality principle can be applied to traditional mining as a basis for waste management of natural resources. A cost structure improves the exploitation of the natural resources and saves energy by promoting economic incentives to a cost-effective waste management.

Why is it important?

The EUROPE model optimizes the mining slope and the ore-concentration when utilizing the rock and provides management with a one digit indicator of their mine’s performance. This approach simultaneously improves the profitability, the technology used and the environment.


All over the world, my methodology will improve the exploitation of natural resources in technological, economical and environmental terms. My methods will be used as support tools for decision-making in waste management and optimize the exploitation of natural resources.
