Global Rare Earth Industry Association (REIA)
DO YOU HAVE A VESTED INTEREST IN A
MORE SUSTAINABLE SUPPLY CHAIN OF REES?
REIA is in its foundation phase supported by its founding members. The objectives of REIA is to- Develop an integrated, de-risked and sustainable value chain for RE materials by:
• Developing a well-matched global stakeholder network
• Analyzing the potential for sustainable supply chains
• Finding solutions for optimizing value chains
REIA will focus on the development of an integrated, de-risked and sustainable value chain for various rare earth material products. The REIA will represent the mutual interests of its united value chain participants, be it stakeholder networking, project research or sustainable sourcing
The global rare earth industry association (REIA) first of its kind was born out of a project (GloREIA), funded by EIT Raw Materials GmbH, a European commission sponsored organization.
REIA will contribute to capacity building for REE practitioners, via enhanced networking among stake holders worldwide, and a better understanding of rare earth value chain. The direct impacts will include the collective benefit of working towards more cooperation; thus, towards a conjoined and coherent approach towards raw materials policies and investments.
MISSION: Gather, Create and Share information in a referential physical center based in Europe for global REE related activities.
REIA is an AISBL (nonprofit organization) aiming at embracing and spreading circular economy (CE) synergies found in the REE chain.
The management board is comprised of industry partners and academic researchers, alike.
