Our positions

EMA members play a key role in facilitating the nation’s green energy transition, which is dependent on a sustainable, domestic supply of minerals.


Green Energy

As the world transitions towards a greener and more sustainable future, the demand for minerals critical to renewable energy technologies is skyrocketing. These minerals, essential for the production of solar panels, wind turbines, and electric vehicle batteries, are transforming the global energy landscape.

Green Products from Industrial Minerals

EMA authored a technical insight paper highlighting the green products made from industrial minerals. Several minerals are of particular importance in implementing the green transition. This applies to minerals are critical in climate and environmentally friendly energy production, minerals which are used directly in environmental applications, and which are of vital importance for modern technology. Many elements and minerals with unique properties are necessary for renewable energy, heat management, water purification, and carbon capture technologies. They are termed “green minerals” and will describe some of the important applications here.
