Webinar: The Future of Critical Minerals & Rare Earth Elements in the Southeast
via Zoom

Now more than ever, securing and processing critical minerals (CMs) and rare earth elements (REEs) is essential to the technological progress and decarbonization of the nation’s energy grid. China controls more than 80 percent of the world’s REEsan imbalance that threatens U.S. energy independence and technological innovation.

How can the Southeast respond to the growing need for CMs and REEs? To answer that question and more, we were joined by:

  • Dr. Grant Bromhal
    Acting Director of the Mineral Sustainability Division at the U.S. Department of Energy;
  • Danny Gray
    Executive VP of Strategy and Business Operations at Green Cement Inc. and SSEB’s Associate Member Chair;
  • Dr. Michael Karmis
    Director of the Virginia Center for Coal & Energy Research (Ret.); and
  • Dr. Charles Sims
    Energy & Environment Program Director at the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy.
