In this week’s episode, Clareo’s Managing Director Satish Rao joins host Adrian Pocobelli to discuss the U.S. critical minerals strategy. Rao delves into how the Inflation Reduction Act has emphasized downstream products like batteries and electric vehicles, but may have overlooked upstream challenges, particularly the mining of essential raw materials. He points out that permitting processes can take up to two decades in the U.S., emphasizing that the aims of friend-shoring critical metals might fall short unless there’s a tangible shift in focus and policy direction.
