Luka Erceq of Simbol Materials highlighted the importance of federal financial support for driving private investment in critical minerals in his testimony. Steven Duclos of GE provided several recommendations for how the government can help the critical minerals industry including improving recycling, decreasing waste in production, and developing technology that eliminates the need for critical minerals.

Origins of the concept of strategic and critical materials can be traced back to World War I. One pilot study that attempted to determine the feasibility of developing a Critical Minerals Index (CMI) for the United States (US) began by dividing the proposed CMI into two components, which were evaluated separately and then combined in a composite : L.

Harold Bullis, James E. Mielke. Critical Minerals Legislation. Accompanied by: Mounting concerns over the limited U.S. supply of critical minerals, as China continues to reduce exports, led the House Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources to hold a hearing on June 3, to discuss two bills that address the issue.

Executive Order“A Federal Strategy to Ensure Secure and Reliable Supplies of Critical Minerals” (82 FRDecem ), addressed the United States' dependency on vulnerable limited and foreign supply chains of mineral commodities that are vital to the Nation's security and economic prosperity.

Amends the National Materials and Minerals Policy, Research and Development Act of to direct the President to: (1) establish an analytical and forecasting capability for identifying critical mineral market dynamics relevant to policy formulation, and (2) encourage federal agency actions to facilitate the development and production of domestic resources to meet national critical material and minerals.

Many new and emerging clean energy technologies, such as the components of wind turbines and electric vehicles, depend on materials with unique properties. The availability of a number of these materials is at risk due to their location, vulnerability to supply disruptions and lack of suitable substitutes.

The importance of considering the entire materials cycle in the analysis of nonfuel minerals and mineral criticality can be appreciated by examining the copper cycle shown in Figure Of the ×10 3 metric tons (Gg; 1 Gg = 10 3 metric tons) of.

For 22 of the 35 listed minerals, China is either the leading global producer, leading U.S. supplier – or both. Connect the dots, and it's clear the U.S. lacks reliable access to a wide range of metals and minerals critical to our military's advanced weapons platforms — materials that in nearly two-dozen cases.

In this new volume, entitled Critical Minerals of the United States, USGS geologists provide the latest and greatest on the geology and resources of 23 mineral commodities deemed critical to the economy and security of the United States. This work is meant to provide decision-makers, researchers, and economists with the tools they need to.

in the OECD. The results are highly mineral-specific, with some minerals requiring huge increases in substitutability and/or recycling from a low base, while others require only small improvements.

Keywords: Critical minerals, critical materials, resource scarcity, recycling, material recovery, material security, circular economy. A case in point: the rare earth minerals purchased by the armed forces and critical to national defense.

America’s supplies of those materials depend heavily on imports from China and other unfriendly countries. As a matter of fact, the U.S. Department of Defense procurestons of minerals and metals every year.

We are monitoring, at. Critical minerals for the EU Henrike Sievers, Bram Buijs, Luis Tercero Even if geological constraints do not account for future supply shortages and no physical scarcity is foreseeable, there might be supply risks in the future, possibly leading to a relative scarcity.

The main risks for EU’s future raw materials supply originate from. Critical materials have been defined as "raw materials for which there are no viable substitutes with current technologies, which most consumer countries are dependent on importing, and whose supply is dominated by one or a few producers".

Several factors may combine to make a raw material (mineral or not) a critical resource. These may include. The first truly authoritative book on critical metals has been published by the British Geological Survey (BGS) in collaboration with Wiley and the American Geophysical Union.
