Missing: A North American Battery Supply Chain

Briefing Overview:

The Battery Materials & Technology Coalition (BMTC) held a panel discussion on the need for a North American battery supply chain. Given China’s control of global battery supply chains, with over 100 battery megafactories built or planned, ownership of more critical mineral reserves than any other country, and a stranglehold on the world’s mineral processing industry, the U.S. needs to act swiftly to secure a domestic battery industry.
