    ➡ Accelerated adoption and implementation of the regulation.

    ➡ Inclusion of the Xinxiang region to the list of high-risk geographical areas for the silicon production.

    ➡ Extension of the list to include processed material and end products and not only raw materials (i.e.. polysilicon, solar panels).

    ➡ Consideration and inclusion of Environmental and social parameters in trade defence instruments and market access conditions, as well as in green public procurement auctions/tenders.

    ➡ Recognition of the environmental advantage of European silicon production vs other regions.

  • Press release - The CRM Act - A starting point to prevent de-industrialization

    The European ferro-alloys and silicon producers, Euroalliages, welcomes the European Commission’s proposal on Critical Raw Materials.

    ‘’This is an important milestone and, at this crucial moment in time, a one-time opportunity to build a strong long-term industrial strategy for the upstream raw materials industries in Europe’’, commented Bob Lambrechts, the Secretary General.

    We support that Silicon is in both lists, but regret that important ferro-alloys are not included as strategic material due to their critical contribution in alloy steel.

    Euroalliages stresses on the urgency of the topic, the EU should not be lagging behind in the global race and preserve its industrial base. We support a case-by-case target setting, differentiating between raw materials with existing production base in Europe and others where diversification in imports is needed. Coherence with other legislations is needed to ensure future predictability.

    “The CRM act is a key starting point to prevent European de-industrialization. To continue to operate in Europe, our Industry needs the right legal framework conditions, including but not limited to, access to affordable and clean energy and a level playing field so as to achieve the European strategic autonomy and the net zero climate goals.” Bob Lambrechts concludes.

  • Renewal of AD measures for 5 years

    EUROALLIAGES was successful in getting the renewal for another 5 year period of the AD measures imposed on Chinese silicon imports, extended to Taiwan and the Republic of South Korea. The Commission took on board all the arguments put forward by EUROALLIAGES. These measures are definitively needed to restore fair competition
