Podcast: Implications of U.S. Executive Order to Review Supply Chains

Lewis Black, CEO of Almonty Industries (Paris, France), joins the MP Interview Series to discuss an executive order signed by President Biden that will begin a review of the supply chains that support several crucial American manufacturing industries, including automobiles, pharmaceuticals, and clean energy. 

In this episode, he covers the intention to insulate the American economy from future shortages of critical imported components, how this move might help open up critical supply of important rare earth materials and help manufacturers obtain raw materials from suppliers outside of China, how durable tungsten is against corrosion and oxidation, and how new production sources of tungsten are critical for increased global supply.
