Minerals Sustainability Division Launched by Energy Department

Aims to provide secure supply chain of critical minerals.

The Department of Energy announced on Friday that the Minerals Sustainability Division has been established. The purpose of the division is to secure the U.S. supply of critical minerals that support energy and manufacturing.

“Improving the domestic availability and supply of critical minerals, including rare earth elements, is a priority … Not only are these minerals vital to U.S. national security, they are also essential components in technologies entering the marketplace,” said Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy Steven Winberg.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Clean Coal and Carbon Management Lou Hrkman said, “This division will accelerate the full potential for carbon ores and critical minerals, facilitating technology innovation in the U.S. basins and supporting the power industry, the U.S. manufacturing base, and our national defense.”
