Raw materials and staple foods – scarce and expensive


Some major commodities show dwindling inventories.

Demand is strong, supply is thinning and, moreover, inflationary events are creating additional pressure. Not only the energy sector is affected, but also industrial metals and basic foodstuffs. In the USA alone, consumer prices rose by 7.5 percent in January, the fastest rate in 40 years. Supply bottlenecks are being caused by production cutbacks, which in turn are being caused by the sharp rise in energy costs. In this context, scarcity does not necessarily mean that a good is not available, but rather that it is abundant, but demand is rising sharply, making it scarce and therefore expensive.

Of interest here is the commissioned study \”Raw material for future technologies 2021\” by the Fraunhofer Institute, prepared for the German Raw Materials Agency. The study is updated every five years. If we take cobalt as an example, it quickly becomes clear why things could get tight here. Cobalt ensures high energy density in lithium-ion batteries, an important aspect of booming electromobility. While the demand for future technologies was around 39 percent of refined metal production in 2018, this quantity could grow to as much as 391 percent by 2040.

It\-s good when a company like Mawson Gold – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysjmwpskpMU – owns not only gold but also the valuable cobalt (Rajapalot gold-cobalt project in Finland).

When thinking about future technologies and food, EnWave – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKhndWB3VVc – is an obvious choice. With its proprietary REV™ technology for drying cannabis, food and pharmaceutical products, the innovative company has already signed more than 45 licenses on five continents. With several processes, vacuum microwave technology scores for specific applications.
