The company racing to free US from reliance on China for electric cars, wind turbines, and satellites

The Washington Examiner’s  Zachary Halaschak reports on UCore, a company that is hoping to end the U.S. reliance on China for rare earth minerals.

The C3 Take
  • America’s over-reliance on China for rare earth minerals represents an economic and national security threat.
  • UCore is looking to bolster America’s rare earth supply chain by opening a separation facility, and eventual mine, in Alaska.
  • Through private sector innovation and smart federal policies, we can end China’s monopoly on rare earth elements.

“The company is aiming to build one of the first U.S. rare earth separation facilities and plans to do so in Ketchikan, Alaska. The facility will use cutting-edge technology to separate out the critical elements from feedstock shipped in from U.S.-allied countries. Once UCore is bringing in revenue, it plans to open its nearby Bokan-Dotson Ridge mine and use ore from there to form a completely domestic supply chain.”
