    Aurora Lithium project in Portugal is key strategic for Europe and for Carbon Neutrality. Due to this, Aurora responsible will engage in several meetings with key stakeholders from the European Union Institutions in this month, aiming to present the project and the main barriers of the project. The meetings will also be a good opportunity for Aurora to present his view regarding the European Raw Materials Act (which is under public consultation) and other relevant legislative procedures that will have a direct impact in this major project.
