The Elements of Innovation Discovered
Critical Minerals Alliances is considered the most comprehensive publication on minerals and metals critical to the security and economic wellbeing of the United States and Canada.
Critical Minerals Alliances 2022 includes 30 minerals, metals, and groups of elements essential to the electric vehicle, lithium battery, renewable energy, and other sectors of the North American economy – aluminum, antimony, cobalt, gallium, germanium, graphite, lithium, manganese, niobium, nickel, 14 of the rare earth elements, tellurium, tin, tungsten, and vanadium, and zinc.
This year’s edition of Critical Minerals features a 12-page section on rare earths that provides in-depth insights into all 14 of the lanthanides that make up this group of critical elements; why separation technology is important and companies developing REE separation facilities in North America; and the seven rare earths used in the powerful permanent magnets that go into electric vehicle motors, wind turbines, and wide array of high-tech and household goods.
Critical Minerals Alliances also provides details on:
• Why these elements are considered critical to the North American economy.
• U.S. and Canada policies and programs aimed at promoting secure supplies.
• The uses and markets driving the demand for these minerals, metals, and groups of elements.
• Canadian and U.S. companies mining, processing, and recycling these minerals and metals.
Overall, the publisher of Critical Minerals Alliances 2022 hopes the in-depth insights offered by this one-of-a-kind magazine helps academia, conservationists, consumers, governments, investors, local stakeholders, manufacturers, and miners forge alliances that will ensure the establishment of a cohesive strategy to sustainably extract, reuse, and recycle the elements of 21st-century innovation.
