Criticality

Antimony is recognized as a critical raw material/mineral in the EU, the US, Japan and Australia. The criticality criteria may vary across these lists, but is globally defined as:

  • a high reliance on imports (risk of supply shortage)
  • limited substitution options
  • an essential function in the manufacture of products which are key to the regional economy and/or national security

The criticality implies not only a high value, but also a high dependence on Antimony, which may be further complicated by the imposition of over-conservative EHS requirements.

i2a works towards evidence-based decision-making to ensure that the use of Antimony faces the least number of irrelevant and/or inapplicable regulatory obstacles as possible.
