Empa Technology Briefing on Critical Materials
Duration: -
Location: EMPA, Dübendorf, Switzerland

Numerous metallic elements are regarded as “critical”: on one hand, they play an ever more important role in so-called future technologies and on the other, there is a high risk of supply bottlenecks. Small and medium-sized companies are also affected by this, and they are often not sure which of these materials they are dependent on. At a “Technology Briefing” at Empa, strategies for the sustainable use of critical materials were presented and discussed. The event aimed to demonstrate ways in which industry and the research community can counter supply risks and the consequence of the ever greater use of these raw materials.
