Abstract

[From Introduction:] Our world will be a different place by 2040. Electric vehicles will dominate the roads, and clean renewable sources will provide most of our energy needs. The internal combustion engine will be headed for the history books to join the computer floppy disc and the Walkman. Enabling this technological revolution will require steady supplies of specialty metals including tin, tungsten, indium and the rare earth elements. The rare earth elements, indium and tungsten have respectively been ranked first, second and third of the most critical commodities (Skirrow et al, 2013), and according to a study by MIT, tin comes out as the metal to be most impacted by new technology.
