Electrical products increasingly rely on certain critical minerals and key components to provide the efficiency and functionality demanded in today’s applications. Critical Minerals include both rare earth elements (such as neodymium used in high-strength magnets) that are essential for advanced technology and minerals like aluminum which is used by nearly every industry. In many cases, there are only a few sources of these minerals creating an inherent risk of disruption in the supply chain.
The NEMA Critical Minerals Council is addressing this risk by promoting policies and programs that will foster a more diverse source of suppliers of these strategically important materials and provide manufacturers with new options for sourcing these components.
