Poland and its companies have a chance to become leaders in the production of strategic raw materials for information technology and green energy. For this to happen, it is necessary to adopt a bold investment policy and make optimal use of European and national funds, emphasizes Dr. Anna Kostro, Member of the Board of Elemental Holding.
Elemental Holding invests in mining and waste recycling companies in cities in the European Union, Turkey, the UAE and the United States.
“If Poland is to play any role in Industry 4.0, we must complement existing oil and gas supply chains with strategic raw materials such as palladium, rhodium, iridium, ruthenium, lithium, nickel, cobalt and copper. And above all, we cannot waste this raw material irresponsibly, ”says Anna Kostro.
Let us remind you that in Ukraine, a large number of promising areas with deposits of rare metals, including strategic deposits of lithium, titanium, nickel, cobalt, niobium, zirconium, as well as gold and hydrocarbons.
The State Service of Geology and Mineral Resources of Ukraine has repeatedly invited foreign investors to take part in electronic auctions, but so far it has been able to sell only one large titanium deposit of Dmitry Firtash's company.
