  • Today, energy efficiency and renewable sources including solar and wind power, fuel cells, and hydrogen-based energy storage facilities as well as batteries for electric automobiles and efficient lighting are rapidly becoming the norm in the global energy sector. The problem, however, is that these developments are dependent on a number of critical or strategic metals that can only be produced economically in a way that is ecologically benign and sustainable by a small number of countries using novel technology. High purity nickel, cobalt, copper, antimony, gallium, vanadium, germanium, indium, and other rare earth elements are only a few of the metals on this list. In sufficient quantities of these important metals are found in India's geological resources to be profitably extracted, as is the case in many countries. Fortunately, several of these metals may be found as minor metals in some of the waste generated in large lead, zinc, copper, and aluminum processes. It is true, however, that the production of these minor metals calls for very specialized technology, none of which can be found in India at the moment.
