- Rapporter 
This report contains information on the Norwegian production of raw materials for building and construction, including 1) sand, gravel and crushed rock, 2) limestone including marble and dolomite, 3) silica sand, 4) clay, 5) filling materials, 6) recycled and secondary materials, and 7) renewable materials, ie. timber. Data are collated from the webpages of the Geological Survey of Norway (www.ngu.no) and Statistics Norway (www.ssb.no), diverse reports, research articles, and other resources. Much of the facts on policy, trends and production targets is ‘read between the lines’ and was distilled from a great number of different documents. Producers are very reluctant with providing exact production data, anxiously protecting their competitive market position. More general data could be obtained through Statistics Norway. Maps, charts and diagrams have all been prepared in-house.
