Platinum can help Albania to enter EU? – Reuters: Albania has many deposits, Europe needs them
“Europe is joining the global battle for critical minerals,” is the headline of a recent Reuters article that highlights the fact that Europe is losing the global battle for metals and that the latter are coming to an end. The article also mentions Albania. “Europe’s production capacity, especially in the refining and processing phase, has been significantly reduced, especially by competition with lower prices, mainly from China.”
The alarm was recently raised by the European association, Eurometaux. “The next five years will determine whether we will succeed in our recovery in this regard, or whether other regions of the world will enter the race,” the association said. The European Commission itself shares the same opinion.
The union has compiled a list of critical minerals, including platinum. That is why the European Commission insists on integrating the Western Balkans into the European supply chain, says Reuters, justifying this with the fact that Albania has platinum deposits.
