CONNEXIS RSCM System at H.C.Starck Certified Seventh Consecutive Time
Tantal is a rare metal that is primarily used in the electronics industry (high capacity condensators, 60% of global production) as well as in the health industry (bone implants). Due to its occurrence and mining in the Democratic Republic of Congo (50% of global supply together with Ruanda) Tantal is considered a conflict resource.
