Abstract

The Act applies to stone, gravel, sand, clay, lime, chalk, peat, topsoil and similar elements. Exploitation of mineral deposits on land and sea must be part of a sustainable development plan which purpose is to ensure monitoring of mining areas after extraction, raw material supply, ensure that raw materials used are quality based and that raw materials shall be, where possible, replaced by waste products. The Minister of Environment sets regulations on quality and quantity of raw materials used for construction, on the recycling thereof, on the quantity and quality of raw materials used for the manufacturing of industrial products, on the processing of certain raw material quality (abstraction) and on waste, replacement products and dredging materials from the Danish marine area to be recovered and recycled as raw material.
