British Geological Survey releases new "risk list"

The British Geological Survey (BGS) has released a new ‘Risk List’ which ranks the risk to global supply of chemical elements of economic value. The list highlights vulnerable elements where global production is concentrated in a small number of countries, including metals which are critical to development of a low-carbon digital economy.

The risk list helps to focus future research on diversifying supply from new resources, using greener production technologies and cost effective recycling.
