New energy paradigms demand new strategic commodities. First in a new series, this article examines factors impacting lithium demand over the next decade.
Next in our series on strategic commodities we examine uranium, a key input in nuclear power generation that was included on the US Interior Department’s list of critical minerals.
Next in our series on strategic commodities we examine tin, a conflict mineral whose production is increasingly dominated by Asian states.
A snap general election in Greenland could reverberate in Arctic geopolitics and rare earth mineral supply chains the world over.
The Democratic Republic of Congo produces most of the world’s cobalt, but has little power over global prices. Kinshasa is working to change that.
Next in our series on strategic commodities we examine tantalum, a conflict mineral with complex geopolitical ramifications for East Africa and beyond.
Next in our series on strategic commodities we examine nickel, a lithium-ion battery input that many hope will one day supplant cobalt. But these plans could be upended by a supply squeeze looming on the horizon.
Post-oil geopolitics will still be dictated by access to key inputs, impacting foreign policies, multilateral alliances, and state support for the mining sector.
US battery giants have long been reliant on foreign lithium supply for their production. But this is now changing.
New energy paradigms demand new strategic commodities. This article examines factors impacting lithium supply over the next decade.
