The rare earths economy: Can supply keep up with growing demand?

In the latest issue of Ceramic & Glass Manufacturing, we look at initiatives to diversify and grow the rare earths supply chain.

The main story overviews initiatives by Las Vegas-based MP Materials and Australia-based Lynas Rare Earth Ltd to increase production of rare earths outside of China, and it also looks at the work by Ames Laboratory’s Critical Materials Institute to improve the separation and recycling of rare earths.

An accompanying article by Ariel Cohen and James C. Grant of the International Tax and Investment Center discusses why and how the United States should establish a reserve of critical minerals like that of the SPR for oil imports.

The latest ceramic and glass business news fill the pages of C&GM, including openings and upgrades of plants, centers, and facilities; new acquisitions and collaborations; and market trends.

An important message for readers of our printed magazine

Attentive readers may notice that this Bulletin is more slender than usual. A normal Bulletin and C&GM combined issue would run 64 pages, but an acute, global shortage of the paper we use forced us to reduce the number of pages printed. After careful consideration, we opted to print less content rather than publish a magazine with content split between print and online. The paper shortage is expected to continue through spring 2022. For more information on the shortage, contact customer service at customerservice@ceramics.org.
