For entering the Finland natural stone market, we think that is necessary for you to realize the following research of natural stone development here? Well, besides exploration for new deposits GTK is constantly involved with research and development of natural stone sector. Research topics are related, e.g. to geological and environmental aspects of natural stone.

Environmental issues have become more and more important part of the stone world, and they are one of the main challenges for the natural stone sector, including environmental impact of the production, use of the leftover stone, life-cycle assessment etc. To meet this challenge GTK coordinated a large multi-scientific environmental project regarding the environmental impact of natural stone industry during 1999-2002. The study comprised of research on ground water issues, noise, dust, vibration, radiation, waste, and the life cycle. The study results show that the impact is restricted mainly to the actual quarry area.

One of the development focuses in natural stone quarrying is the management of leftover stone with the goal to increase the recovery of the quarries. The challenges connected to the leftover stone cover a vast area, reaching from material research, data bases, and environmental suitability to product development, logistics, legal status, and land use planning.

GTK has actively built up networks in natural stone research and development not only in Finland but also abroad. Networks combining research and development activities in the European Union (EU) have been created in several large international projects, the latest being OSNET (Ornamental Stone Network), in which GTK is also involved. OSNET comprises about 60 member organizations from industry, universities, educational institutes, research organizations etc. The aim has been to provide the necessary forum to share problems and experiences and to facilitate the transfer and incorporation of technology to the interested European market companies and organizations.
