MATERIALS

GRANDCHALLENGE

Making the energy transition truly sustainable

The demand for critical raw materials (rare metals, rare earths) is skyrocketing as we decarbonise our  economies and societies. However, these metals cause new economic and strategic dependencies, and the processes used in extracting and refining them are far from being environmentally friendly.

Alternative materials, new technologies and processes are needed. Fast.
