Editor review:
This document outlines US rare earth supply projections and how it impacts renewable energy production and the adoption of new technologies such as electric vehicles. The primary drawback is that it is now outdated and does not take into account updated information about current mining efforts outside of China (although it does anticipate them).
Yegii Reviews:
This US govt.-official report outlines US critical materials' supply projections and strategies to meet the country’s high demand. The doc is well-laid out, with a Table of Contents outlining topics in the report. This document is accompanied by good visuals and statistics to assist explanations of strategies and projections; however, a major setback comes with the fact that the doc is very outdated (December 2011). The document’s length also negatively affects its readability. submitted by mack on Wed, 07/16/2014 - 11:57
