Synopsis

Kevin Moore, All Raw Materials Consulting, Dr. Edward Becker, Friction & Wear Solutions, LLC, Jack Lifton, Technology Metals Research. Topic: Rare-earth metals.

Today’s hybrid and electric cars are famous for their double digit mpgs. They get those great numbers, in part, by a combination of products under the hood that start in the earth’s crust. That’s where 17 chemical elements in the periodic table are found which go into lasers, rare-earth magnets & batteries that help power our 21st century transportation.

Joining John McElroy on our Autoline expert panel is Kevin Moore, a Rare-earth metals consultant, Dr. Edward Becker who was GM’s Rare-earth expert before retiring and Jack Lifton co-founder of the company Technology Metals Research.
