Europe Natural Resources

Europe is bestowed with nature’s blessings. Each country in Europe has some landmark natural resources which are exported all over the world. The European Union has firm polices regarding the export and free trade of Europe natural resources. It is working hard for the expansion of the free trade all over Europe. It is aiming towards enhanced markets and ample supplies. The European Union is taking account of the sustainability factor of the Europe natural resources. The European Union is also aiming at free trade policies to all the European industries abroad. But these are some long term plans. The European Union economic policies have marked a revolution in the area of trade of the Europe natural resources.

Let us first have a look at the natural resources of each European nation, individually. Germany is rich in Iron ores, coal and natural gas production. The nation also accounts for some important minerals like copper, salt, potash and nickel. Modern day Germany has also started exporting important construction materials. Belgium exports construction materials like carbonates and silica sand. Italy is known for important Europe natural resources like coal, marble, mercury, potash, pumice, barite, zinc, nickel, barite, asbestos, fluorspar, pyrite, feldspar, sulfur, salt, uranium and copper. Italy is also self sufficient for the construction materials.

Russia, located in the European region, is quite rich in global natural resources. It accounts for natural resources like phosphates, platinum, chromium, manganese, iron ores, nickel, titanium, tungsten, copper and tin. Russia is also rich in precious natural resources like gold and diamonds. Siberian Forests, located in Russia, account for more than twenty percent of worlds’ timber consumption. France too comprises of important minerals like iron ores, uranium and bauxite. French natural resources are rich in, much required, coal and petroleum as well. Holland adds to the European natural gas production. It is also rich in construction materials like limestone, sand and gravel stone. Holland is also rich in petroleum (the need of the hour), peat, arable and salt. The United Kingdom is responsible for the supply of gypsum and chalk all over Europe. It is also rich in Europe natural resources like coal, petroleum, lead, zinc, natural gas, iron ores, gold, limestone, salt, tin and clay.

Europe natural resources like oil and gas are designed to aid industries, analysts, service companies and regulatory bodies in Europe.  This makes the management better and increases the opportunity for global business.

    Russia is the most important petroleum provider. But they are favored by the fact that they are placed on an immense territory. That’s why they contribute a lot to the europe natural resources.

    There are lots of europe resources. However after there will be nothing, we would be in a bad position. Everyone needs to become ecological from now on.

    As Jerry said, europe resources will soon come to an end. I am curious how people will solve this problem. Beside us, americans also makes use of europe natural resources so it’s bad.

    Don’t stress out, there are enough natural resources. europe natural resources as well. We have enough time.

    All this hassle for nothing. I don’t think in this global warming thing. Yes, they should manage the europe natural resources better, but it doesn’t necessarily have to do with the climate changing.

    europe is a very big country. it has alot of natural resoures. i hope one day i will be able to go there.

  9. Hailey   September 28, 2009 4:13 pm

    Europe is not that big of a country… it is the 2nd smallest! continent/country thing. but europe does have alot of resources campared to its size but soon most all natural resouces will be gone because we use too much. everyone everywhere needs to be more green. its not just the usa(even though the usa really needs to cut back) its everyone.

    hey Hailey, u might be as well not known to anything about Europe, its not a country its a contanent. Yeah

  11. person   January 14, 2010 6:23 pm

    Yay finally I find something that I can use as a reference for my geog. paper. We had to list the resources. Thankss!

  12. felicia   January 17, 2010 2:12 pm

    recources of europe are going to be minimal. i know it seems that they’ll be there forever,but nothing lasts forever!

  13. felicia   January 17, 2010 2:21 pm

    europe is going to end up being taken over by another country four all their recources.

  14. santiago   January 25, 2010 12:06 pm

    Felicia what the fudge are you talking about? One, it would be pretty hard taking over a whole continent. Hitler tried to do that and he ended up killing himself. Two, its for not four. And finally three, europe is a continent not a country.

    Global warming does not exsist, its a political divice used by corupt politicians.The earth has gone through a massive ice age and is still re-heating from it, thats what this whole “global warming” thing is.Climate change is completely natural.

    What everyone needs to realize is there is only a limited amount natural resources on this planet, and me we need to recycle everything or else it will be lost forever.

  21. Ravi   October 31, 2010 10:30 pm

    Europe is one of the most developed parts of the world.It owes its prosperity to the resources which are available in this continent.The people of Europe have used the available resources very wisely.

  22. janhavi (jass)   February 8, 2011 8:09 am

    we should not polluted our country .we should not waste resources,because they are limited.

  23. Jessa   March 4, 2011 8:20 pm

    I agree with the person above who said that we have limited resources on this earth. We do need to start reusing everything. Europe is the same as every other place in this world. One day they too will run out of their natural resources.

  24. shwetma   May 31, 2011 6:02 am

    I agree with this and also expected that natural resources would look all over the world.
    As by this we can balance our global ./earth.
