Supplying Critical Minerals

Critical minerals play a key role in manufacturing the electric vehicles Americans drive every day. On this episode, John Bozzella welcomes Abigail Wulf, Vice President of Critical Minerals Strategy at SAFE to kick off a new series exploring critical minerals, battery components, the battery supply chain, and the important role they play in the automotive industry. The two discuss the domestic supply chain for critical minerals, government policies designed to support onshoring, and the implications of ceding global leadership on critical mineral production.

America’s automobile industry is one of the most powerful engines driving the U.S. economy.

The greater automobile industry extends well beyond the iconic names of auto companies familiar to us all. Auto manufacturing depends on thousands of companies supplying parts, components and materials, as well as a vast retail and vehicle maintenance network. The greater industry supports roughly 10 million American jobs – delivering not just vehicles, but billions in paychecks to workers.
