CREaTe leverages a collaboration to achieve US Rare Earth Element independence.

Today, it’s nearly impossible to open a technology news feed without reading about the impact that access to Rare Earths has on the United States’ foreign policy, economy, environment, energy resources, and defense. The Departments of State, Commerce, Interior, Energy, and Defense are all looking to address Rare Earth issues and modernize/upgrade mines and broker international deals. CREaTe will champion and enable technology development, from basic research through prototypes into production, that can make a difference in the Rare Earth supply chain.

Accordingly, we are pleased to invite U.S. Government representatives, industry, and academia, to join the Consortium for Rare Earths Technologies – CREaTe.

Who Should Join

CREaTe focuses on enabling collaborative technology development from pre-competitive roadmapping up through prototype development and production for the benefit of the entire U.S. industrial base.

Focus Areas

  • Government Representatives
    Numerous US agencies are currently exploring options to address the Rare Earth supply chain. CREaTe welcomes government representative participation to guide the roadmapping efforts by identifying the key contributors, defining requirements, and assessing the technology feasibility that will drive solutions that meet your agency’s mission.

  • Industry: Users of Rare Earths
    Rare Earths are vital across the entire US industrial base.  CREaTe welcomes the automotive, communication, energy, aerospace, electronics and every other industry that uses Rare Earths to inform on end-product requirements, forecast demand, and provide guidance to improve the availability of rare earths for your business.

  • Industry: Extractors, Processors, Reclaimers
    The suppliers of Rare Earths are at the forefront of the challenge we face in the US. CREaTe welcomes mine operators, processors and those looking to recycle Rare Earths to identify cost drivers, communicate current practices and offer lessons learned (non-competition sensitive) to best inform technologies that will benefit your business.
