NCEW Virtual Policymaker Symposium: Critical Minerals and Supply Chain Security

Wednesday, September 27, 2023, 1:00pm – 5:00pm

The Policymakers Symposium is a robust program featuring expert panel discussions and keynote remarks on the latest in climate and energy policy, highlighting leaders in their fields.

During the virtual September 27th panel discussion on Critical Minerals and Supply Chain Security, participants explored the top concerns facing the global clean energy transition including adequate domestic sourcing, inventing substitutes, and recycling and reprocessing, in relation to national security – and funding for innovation.
 
Jeremy Furr, representing Stryten Energy and a BCI featured speaker on the panel, explained how lead batteries model a high standard for recycling and a circular economy which results in keeping materials in the U.S. rather than exporting them to foreign recyclers.
