You probably have not heard of Tantalum. However, like the Greek mythological figure it is named after, the world is developing a need for it which is not easily satisfied. The supply chain of Tantalum also poses some fundamental questions on the supply chain of the electron economy. Tantalum is in our cell phones, TVs and EVS due to its remarkable properties. However, it is produced by artisanal miners in Congo. In this episode we discuss Tantalum’s role in energy transition, its supply chain, and solutions to meet the world’s growing demand in an equitable way. Speaking to Paul Chapman, our guest Hadley Natus, Chairman of Tantalex and CEO of Afrimet, provides a clear-eyed, insider’s view on the Tantalum trade.
