Event Details

Background

Raw materials are crucial to Europe’s economy and essential to maintaining and improving our quality of life. Securing reliable and unhindered access to certain raw materials is a growing concern within the EU and across the globe. To address this challenge, the European Commission has created a list of Critical Raw Materials (CRMs). CRMs combine a high economic importance to the EU with a high risk associated with their supply. Examples of CRMs include rare earth elements, cobalt and niobium but the latest list can be found here.

The overarching objective of the EU Project SCRREEN is to strengthen Europe's CRM Strategy. You can find out further information on the SCRREEN website here.

This is the second in a series of two webinars designed to inform on recommendations for policy intervention, give an overview of economic drivers for the substitution of critical raw materials, and two case studies on the opportunities and challenges within alloys and batteries. 
 
The first webinar will look at briefly covering the historical and current situation regarding CRMs, as well as substitution profiles of CRMs. You can register for the first webinar here.
